Freescale employees mourned on missing Malaysian flight

March 10, 2014 // By Julien Happich
Nearly three days after Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 vanished from radar screens and as the mystery remains about what actually happened on-board, Freescale Semiconductor mourns 20 of its employees who were confirmed passengers among a total of 227 together with 12 crew members.

“Twelve are from Malaysia and eight are from China” the company confirmed in a recent statement.

“At present, we are solely focused on our employees and their families,” reportedly said Gregg Lowe, president and CEO, Freescale. “Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by this tragic event”,  Lowe added. The company has assembled counselors and other professionals through Freescale’s Employee Assistance Program, with around-the-clock support for those impacted by this tragedy.

Search crews from nine countries are still trying to locate debris in the seas between Malaysia and Vietnam, a likely place where the Boeing-777 may have ended.

On behalf of all the editors at EE Times Europe, I would like to express our compassion with all the victims' families and friends.
