Prosecutors have revealed more information about the pilot who crashed Germanwings Flight 9525, giving some more insight into what may have led to the tragedy that resulted in the deaths of all 150 on board the flight.
Brice Robin, the French prosecutor for the case, told reporters on Thursday that doctors considered Andreas Lubitz unfit to fly but did not tell his employer because of Germany's strict medical laws.
In the years leading up to the crash, Lubitz had consulted doctors and medical specialists 41 times, according to Robin. Seven of those visits had come just within a month of the incident.
