We all heard about the tragic accident this morning, where a Germanwings Flight 4U9525 crashed in the French Alps, instantly killing everyone on board.
At the time it was reported that there were two Aussies on board from Victoria, but we were yet to discover who they were.
We can now comfirm that the two Australians have been identified as Carol Friday and her 29-year-old son Grieg.

“Carol was a loving Mother of two, a devoted wife to her husband Dave and a sister to three brothers. She celebrated her 68th birthday on March 23rd.
“Greig was to turn 30 on 23rd April. He was a loving son to Carol and Dave and an exceptional brother to his sister Alex. He was adored by all of his family and friends,” the family said.

According to the family, Carol, a registered nurse and midwife, loved to travel and see the world.
Grieg was a mechanical engineer and student who, like his mum, loved to travel and was hoping to teach English as a foreign language in France this year.
Rest in Peace. x
