2015 Germanwings Crash Andreas Lubitz Germanwings

Authorities find torn-up sick notes

27 Mar, 2015

German authorities find torn-up sick notes showing that Lubitz was dealing with an illness that should have kept him from flying on the day of the crash. Lubitz apparently hid these notes from the airline. German law requires employees to immediately inform their employers if they are unable to work.

Documents with medical contents were confiscated that point towards an existing illness and corresponding treatment by doctors…The fact there are sick notes saying he was unable to work, among other things, that were found torn up, which were recent and even from the day of the crime, support the assumption based on the preliminary examination that the deceased hid his illness from his employer and his professional colleagues.
