20 Air France and Lufthansa crew rescued from Oberoi hotel

As per media reports, a group of about 20 airline crew members, have been evacuated from Mumbai’s Oberoi hotel. Most of the rescued airline staff were in Lufthansa and Air France uniforms.

A bus immediately whisked the guests away from the hotel. One crew member in a Lufthansa uniform who wore a name tag identifying her as L. Laurence said things inside the hotel “were definitely not good.” and “We’re just very glad we’re out.”

About two dozen people had been evacuated from the hotel earlier Friday, after the elite NSG “Black Cats” commandos stormed the hotel to rescue guests and hostages from the clutches of Islamic militants.

About 125 people have lost their lives, and 327 injured till now.
