Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17

Memorial service for Australian children

3 Aug, 2014

A memorial service is held at Scotch College in Melbourne for three Australian children who died, along with their grandfather, on flight MH17. Mo, Evie and Otis Maslin, aged 12, 10 and eight, died alongside their grandfather Nick. More than 1,000 attended the service at Mo’s boarding school. Their mother Rin Norris says:

When their innocent bodies were shot out of the sky, I stretched my arms as high as I could and screamed for them. Now I see them only in my head. I can’t imagine the memory of their bodies close to mine and the love in my heart will always be open for them. My arms will always be reaching for them.
