Helicopter rescue pilot and father-of-two Cameron Dalziel was among the nine Britons killed in the Malaysia Airlines tragedy, according to reports.
Mr Dalziel, 43, is understood to be South African but was travelling on a British passport. He is believed to have moved to Malaysia last October with his wife Reine, and their two sons Sheldon, 14, and four-year-old Cruz, to take up a job with CHC Helicopter. Mr Dalziel's brother-in-law Shane Hattingh said:
[Reine] is basically alone there other than with new friends. So she couldn't even talk to me. Apparently three people from the company were there with her. It's crazy, the kids are going to be absolutely shattered.
Thousands of online users have taken to social media to call for the victims of the Malaysian airliner crash to be returned to loved ones.
United States intelligence officials admitted that they do not know who fired the surface-to-air missile that downed flight MH17.
