Thus far there are 28 fatalities.
22 of them are children. 7 of them are Dutch. This is because the victims are a.o. from a school in Lommel, which is near the Dutch border.
As a parent, a father of two kids, who my wife and I love passionately, I can't even begin to comprehend the agony the parents of the victims must now go through. Now. At this very moment. I do not think that in their situation, I would be able to cope. I'm pretty sure of that.
There are no words for this. The carnage was horrifying. Even the hardened Swiss rescue teams had trouble coping with the scene from hell.
I... would like to ask for your thoughts and prayers. To the relatives of the victims we offer our sincere and heartfelt condolences.
