But So Far, They Don't Rule Out Some Other Toxic Gas
Coroners in Greece say the passengers who were killed or
incapacitated aboard a doomed Helios Airways 737 didn't suffer from
carbon monoxide poisoning -- but refused to rule out some other
substance in the air aboard the plane.
As ANN reported earlier this week, the Helios
Airways 737-300 overflew the airport in Athens apparently unguided
and crashed nearby, killing all 121 aboard.
Chief Athens coroner Fillipos Koutsafis told reporters he
conducted tests for carbon monoxide because "this was the fastest
test and the most secure. We are still doing tests for other gases,
poisons, drugs and alcohol." Koutsafis was quoted by the Associated
Press. "I don't know and can't rule out" the possibility that some
other substance was involved, he said.
Tests for other contaminants won't
be finished until next week, he said.
"We will shed ample light on the causes of this crash. There
must not be any unanswered question. We owe this to this victims
and their families," Justice Minister Anastatios Papaligouras said.
And that may be his last word on the investigation until it's
wrapped up. "I want to wait for the final report," he said.
