Addis Ababa, Ethiopia — New details are emerging about the victims of the Ethiopian Airlines plane crash Sunday, that claimed 157 lives. Eight of the dead were American, including two brothers and a U.S. service member on vacation.
At the crash site, CBS News witnessed unrestrained grief, as the mother of one of the flight attendants on board broke down. It couldn't be more miserable there, as the smell of death overpowers and bits of mangled wreckage are everywhere.
At the site, local investigators were joined by a team of American aviation experts who are searching for answers. In the U.S. another mother grieves her son Antoine Lewis, an American service member who was heading for Kenya on vacation.
"I will say that plane went down with him doing what he wanted to do most. As a mother, you just say he did what he loved to do," said Antoinette Lewis, his mother.
