The crash of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 in Ukraine is the airline's second tragic flight this year. Flight 370 went missing back in March. CNN's Kyung Lah tells us about a family that narrowly avoided calamity on that flight, just to be caught up in the latest disaster. This is a crash that should never have happened. And Sanjid Sandhu should not have been aboard. "He's not supposed to be on," says Jijar Singh Sandhu, Sandhu's father. "He swapped his flight, just to be back home," says Sandhu's mother. Sandhu took another flight attendant's spot, trying to get home early to see his parents. "Fate has played a very unfair hand against us," says Jijar Singh Sandhu. Fate, that once favored Sandhu. he and his wife, Bee Geok Tan are both Malaysia Airlines flight attendants. Last March, Tan was scheduled to work Flight 370. Sandhu's parents say she swapped shifts at the last minute, so she did not board what would become the missing plane. A brush with death then, that has arrived to claim another. "Are you angry?" asked CNN's Kyung Lah. "Internally we are angry, yes," says Jijar Singh Sandhu. "We are angry this thing happened to us. He was our only son." And leaves behind not just his wife, but a 10-year-old son, Hans, who told his grandfather... "Hey dadaji, don't worry, I'm here, I'll take over for your son. "I'm now the man of the house," Jijar Singh Sandhu says "You can't tell what's coming, can you?" asks Ismail Nasaruddin, of the National Union of Flight Attendants. The head of the flight attendants union in Malaysia says the unprecedented, two disasters for one airline, just months apart, have shaken flight crews to the core. "It hits you really deep, seeing faces of people you know, friends you flew with past many years ago, friends who called me right before the flight," Nasaruddin says. Sandhu's parents say after this crash, their daughter-in-law may never be able to fly again. She left a public message to her husband in Chinese on Facebook..."We know you are gone and you won't be coming back. I wish you a safe journey and I know you will go to a much better place." But there's no such peace for Sandhu's parents. "I beg the rebels to please be human for one reason. At least release the bodies. They want to fight, go ahead and fight." But at least give these families some measure of peace.
