THE COLOR

ONE SURE THING

Families in Canada and around the world are grieving after the crash of an Ethiopian Airlines plane left no survivors.

One of the 18 Canadians killed in the crash was 24 year old Danielle Moore.

She was originally from Scarborough, Ontario, but had been living in Winnipeg for the past year or so working for Canada Learning Code.

Moore was the Winnipeg Code Mobile Education Lead, which had her travelling across Winnipeg and Manitoba to bringing hands-on, interactive technology education to youth who may not otherwise have the experience. From girls to newcomers to Indigenous youth to young Canadians with disabilities, their goal is to give all Canadians a chance to build, and not just consume technology.

Moore had recently been selected to attend the United Nations Environment Assembly in Nairobi, Kenya where she would've had the opportunity to discuss global environmental issues, share stories and connect with other youth and leaders from all over the world.

Unfortunately that trip never happened. Just six minutes after departing from Ethiopia's capital of Addis Ababa, the plane she was in, crashed.

A total of 157 people were killed. At least 35 nationalities are among the victims, including 32 Kenyans, and people from China, the United States, Saudi Arabia, Nepal, Israel, India and Somalia.

The accident was strikingly similar to last year's crash of a Lion Air jet -- both involved the Boeing 7-37 Max 8 -- and both happened minutes after takeoff.

The flight data and cockpit voice recorders have been recovered from the crater that marks the site of the crash.

There are reports that at least one of them was damaged.

A six-member team of U-S aviation experts is en route to Addis Ababa, and the American ambassador says aircraft maker Boeing and Interpol will also assist the Ethiopian government in the crash investigation.
