French rescue workers inspect the remains of the Germanwings Airbus A320 at the site of the crash.

FURTHER investigations of the Germanwings crash site in the French Alps have revealed 78 separate DNA strands from body parts of the 150 victims, which have been scattered around the crash area. 

The plane’s impact into the side of the mountain in the French Alps was so strong that no complete bodies have been found and DNA samples taken from relatives, dental records and fingerprints are being used to identify victims. 

A rough access road is being constructed to the crash site to help investigators who are still searching for the second ‘black box,’ the important flight data recorder, amongst the wreckage. 


There’s no guarantee that this machine, which may contain a great deal of important information, survived the initial 700 kilometres per hour impact of the crash.
