LOOK: Family photos of Filipinos killed in MH17 crash
The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) has identified the three Filipino fatalities in the Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 crash in eastern Ukraine.
They are Irene Gunawan, 54, and her two children Sheryl Shania Gunawan, 15; and Darryl Dwight Gunawan, 20.
A friend of the Gunawans, Peter Overbeeke, who is from the Netherlands, told ANC that the family was going to take a flight to Manila from Kuala Lumpur.
"I'm 99 percent sure that they will have an onward flight to Manila because they were having their summer vacation," he said.
Overbeeke said Gunawan's husband was also on the flight. He said Mr. Gunawan, who is of Indonesian blood, was an employee of Malaysia Airlines in Amsterdam.
