New theory blames lithium batteries for MH370 loss

A SIMPLE new theory for MH370's disappearance points the finger directly at the 221kg of lithium ion batteries on board.

US pilot and aviation engineer Bruce Robertson has outlined the theory on his website, based on known facts about the Malaysia Airlines flight and what it was carrying.

He suggests the lithium ion batteries caught fire sending a cloud of deadly carbon monoxide into the cabin.

Pilot Zaharie Ahmad Shah succumbed to the fumes, but co-pilot Fariq Abdul Hamid survived long enough to turn the plane around and place it into a descent.

It then flew on in autopilot mode before crashing into the Southern Indian Ocean.
