Funeral Services Held for Flight 5191 Victims

New Media Producer: Rachel Chambliss

Funeral services were held all weekend for many of the 49 killed in the crash of Flight 5191 last Sunday.

Hundreds of friends and family members attended the funerals, mourning their sudden loss.

Comair Flight 5191 took off from the wrong runway at the Blue Grass Airport in Lexington. Those who are closest to the victims say they can't believe such a fatal mistake was made.

One couple was on their way to Aruba to get married.

Frank Caldwell, a friend of the couple, says, "A tragedy has stricken them so very fast. Flight 5191 has taken their life on their greatest journey to be husband and wife."

The start of funerals coincides with a flurry of legal action stemming from the disaster. A lawsuit, blaming Comair for the crash, was filed Friday in Lexington.
