Anthony Maslin and Marite Norris are still receiving psychiatric treatment
The parents of the three young children killed in the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 two years ago have revealed they have suffered devastating depression and trauma since the tragedy.
Couple Anthony Maslin and Marite Norris' heartbreak was laid bare in court documents lodged as part of their claim for compensation from the airline, and details the depths of their despair when sons Mo, 12, and Otis, 8, and daughter Evie, 10, were killed along with their grandfather, Nick Norris, as they returned home to Perth in 2014.
The documents reveal the couple has suffered extensive psychiatric and emotional harm because the airline failed to contact them about the tragedy before they saw detailed footage of the crash on television, reports Perth Now.
MH17 was shot down on July 17, 2014, as it flew over eastern Ukraine on its way from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur. Full story
