2 Americans on Germanwings Flight 9525

PARIS (KRON) — Germanwings’ chief executive, THomas Winkelman, says that a flight manifest shows that there were two Americans on Flight 9525 that crashed in the French Alps Tuesday morning.

The airlines current information shows that along with the two Americans, there were 72 Germans and 35 Spanish citizens on board the flight.

There were two victims each from Australia, Argentina, Iran and Venezuela. One victim each came from Britain, the Netherlands, Colombia, Mexico, Japan, Denmark, Belgium and Israel.

According to Winkleman, the list is not final yet because the company is still trying to contact the families of 27 passengers.

Many countries allow dual citizenship, which is making it harder to determine some of the victims’ nationalities.

Spain’s government said they had identified 49 Spanish victims, while Britain says it believes there were at least three Britons on board.

Three generations of one family – a schoolgirl, her mother and grandmother – were on the Germanwings plane that crashed, according to a town outside Barcelona.

A statement from Sant Cugat del Valles town hall didn’t provide their names.

The girl was a student of a middle school for children aged 10 to 11 at Santa Isabel school in Sant Cugat.

“The students are very affected. The teachers are trying to help them any way they can,” said a woman who answered the phone at the school. She refused to give her name or comment further.

French officials have said first responders were not able to find any survivors from the crash.
