French Prosecutor Says No Video Footage Inside Crashed Germanwings Exists

The leading French prosecutor investigating crashed Germanwings Flight 9525 told CNN on Wednesday that he was not aware of the existence of any video footage taken on board the plan just before it crashed. Magazines Paris Match and German-based Bild jointly claimed Tuesday that a source near the investigation recovered a video from a cellphone at the site of the crash. CNN interviewed Julian Reichelt, editor-in-chief of Bild, who said the video showed a "very disturbing scene" in the cabin. "It was very shaky, it's very chaotic, but there are some things that are very much in line with the investigation we have seen so far," he said. "Metallic banging can also be heard more than three times, perhaps of the pilot trying to open the cockpit door with a heavy object," reported Paris Match. Screams and sounds of panicked passengers can also be heard, the magazine said. Prosecutor Robin told CNN that "so far no videos were used in the crash investigation." But he added that anyone who "has such a video needs to immediately give it to the investigators." The video was not posted to either magazine's website.
