Malaysia blasts report that MH370 pilot was found ALIVE in Taiwan hospital
MALAYSIA has blasted reports which claimed the pilot of the doomed MH370 plane had been found ALIVE.
Claims Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah was being treated at a Taiwan hospital after villagers found him suffering from dehydration and amnesia quickly went viral.
The article in question was posted with the headline “Taiwan: MH370 pilot mysteriously resurfaces almost 2 years after his flight vanished over China sea” alongside a photo of a heavily bandaged man lying in a hospital bed.
The story said a group Taiwanese villagers found Mr Shah near the Tangshui River and got him immediate medical attention.
It added doctors said Mr Shah had regressive amnesia.
A doctor called Syed Boon Sulong was quoted as saying: "The patient is still very weak and sick, and his brain seems to be blocking access to a certain part of his memory in order to protect him from pain that these memories could generate.
"His health is too fragile for the moment, but over time, he should able to remember everything.”
But Transport Minister Datuck Seri Liow Tiong Lai quickly brushed off the claims warning people not to “speculate”.
He added: “The ministry will provide updates on MH370 from time to time.
“Any information regarding MH370 must be referred to us. Do not speculate.”
It is has since emerged the article was posted by on a website named World News Daily Report which has a disclaimer in its About Us section.
The discalimer reads: "All characters appearing in the articles in this website – even those based on real people – are entirely fictional and any resemblance between them and any persons, living, dead, or undead is purely a miracle."
The man pictured in the photo is actually Aung My Oo, a Myanmar migrant worker who was in hospital after being attacked in 2013. Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 vanished on March 8 2014 during a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.
The 239 passengers and crew were presumed dead but the wreckage of the aircraft has never been found.
The Australian Transport Safety Bureau has been leading the multi-million underwater search in the southern Indian Ocean.
MH370 Pilot Resurfaces In Taiwan, Two Years After Flight Disappearance

The missing pilot of the Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 that disappeared in March 2013, has mysterious reappeared in a Taiwan hospital on Monday, suffering from amnesia.
Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah was transported to the Taipei Adventist Hospital by villagers after they claim to have found a man lying unconscious on the banks of the Tangshui river.
He finally woke up almost 16 hours after arriving at the hospital, but couldn’t remember his name or how he arrived in Taipei. He was rapidly identified, however, thanks to his fingerprints, instantly attracting a lot of attention from the media and from various Asian governments.
The doctors who have been treating since his arrival believe that he may be suffering from regressive amnesia, caused by a major stress or life-threatening situation.
“The patient seems to have undergone a lot of stress lately, and the amnesia is probably an unconscious self-defense mechanism,” claims Dr. Syed Boon Sulong. “The patient is still very weak and sick, and his brain seems to be blocking access to a certain part of his memory, in order to protect him from pain that these memories could generate. His health is too fragile for the moment, but over time, he should able to remember everything.”
Many people hope that Captain Shah will now be able to bring answers concerning Malaysia Airlines’ Boeing 777-200ER, that disappeared on 8 March 2014, while flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.
Despite all the efforts of the international community, the fate of the infamous flight remains unclear, almost 2 years after the events. Hopefully, as Mr. Shah recovers his memory, he should be able to bring answers to many questions concerning the 12 Malaysian crew members and 227 passengers from 15 nations that were on board.
