As the flight was shot down...

Bodies rained down on Ukraine village after plane disaster »

Reuters reports some gory details from the flight 17 shoot down.. A snippet from their extended article:

One of the corpses fell through the rickety roof of Irina Tipunova’s house in this sleepy village, just after Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 exploded high over eastern Ukraine, where pro-Russian separatists are fighting government forces. “There was a howling noise and everything started to rattle. Then objects started falling out of the sky,” the 65-year-old pensioner said in front of her grey-brick home. “And then I heard a roar and she landed in the kitchen, the roof was broken,” she said, showing the gaping hole made by the body when it came through the ceiling of the kitchen in an extension to the house. The dead woman’s naked body was still lying inside the house, next to a bed.

The rest of the story gets worse.. Reuters reports many women and children being aboard this doomed flight. But even more disturbing is the lack of something .. CNN is reporting that the crash site is largely neglected..instead of forensics analysts on site to recover bodies, it’s a grab bag of personal possessions up for the taking by guiltless looters .. CNN reports:
Emergency workers tell CNN it’s not their job to collect the bodies. And a local pro-Russian rebel leader has said that officials from the Netherlands and Malaysia asked that the bodies not be moved. But rescue crews and inspectors from those countries are not on site. And to get there, they would have to drive about 90 minutes from the city of Donetsk down pot-hole pocked roads. But these lead through a war zone, past checkpoints set up by varying local militias. There is no central command, virtually no rule of law.

Disturbing at the least.. Sickening as well. Bodies just rot in the sunflower fields forever ..
