Smoke alarms were set off before EgyptAir crash, reports say
According to an Egyptian aviation website, smoke alarms were set off some minutes before the EgyptAir Flight MS804 plunged into the Mediterranean Sea located off Alexandria in Egypt.
Minutes before the flight plunged into the sea, the toilet smoke alarm was activated according to Aviation Herald website, which tracks incidents and news in the aviation industry.
The website informed that it tracked and received information that smoke alarms went off in the toilets of the Airbus A320 before the crash.
Though the authenticity of the data has not been officially confirmed, the website also reported smoke alerts in the proximity to the electronics and equipment bay of the aircraft.
Following the revelation by the aviation website, Egyptian authorities are now investigating the reports of smoke alerts.
“We are looking into this report,” an Egyptian civil aviation ministry official told the AFP news agency. “At this point I can’t deny or confirm it.”
