The latest news updates state that all 49 passengers including crewmembers did not survive, however, the residents of the home did make it out alive. This along with any other tragic event really churns my stomach over and over. I know first hand what it's like to lose loved ones at the snap of a finger without any warning and to think about all of their family/friends now having to deal with the heart wrenching reality is very, very saddening. My thoughts, prayers, and deepest sympathy goes out to all of the victims and those affected by this event.
