Two Cathay Pacific Pilots killed in Hong Kong

It is very sad to read that two Cathay Pacific pilots were killed in the early hours of this morning when the sports car they were driving in careered off the road and burst into flames. The men were both aged 27 according to a police commander at the scene and were excellent pilots with a long career ahead of them with the airline..
The crash happened at 4.40am near Hong Kong's Container Terminal, said Inspector Ma Wai-hung, from New Territories South's special investigation team. From what I read the men had been trapped in the blazing wreckage, adding that their bodies were already badly burnt when paramedics arrived at the scene.
Detectives said the pair had spent the hours immediately before the crash chatting with three friends nearby. The accident happened as they drove away, police said. They don't think alcohol or drugs were involved but investigations are continuing.
My thoughts and prayers go out their family and friends and of course colleagues at Cathay Pacific. Rest in peace.
