Looters Rob Polish Crash Dead

May 11, 1987|United Press International

WARSAW — Looters descended on the burning wreckage of the Polish LOT jetliner that plunged into a forest south of Warsaw and stole rings and money from the 183 people killed in the crash, a state-owned newspaper reported today.

The report came as a government commission continued its investigation into why the Soviet-built Ilyushin 62 slammed into the forest 53 minutes after taking off Saturday from Warsaw's Okecie Airport on a flight to New York.
