‘It’s like walking in darkness’: One year since Flight 752

THE BIG STORY | posted Friday, Jan 8th, 2021

In today’s Big Story podcast, at the time it seemed like it might be the worst disaster of 2020. When Flight 752 was shot down in Iran, 176 passengers and crew, including 55 Canadians, were killed. In the months to come, the cries for answers would be drowned out by the rise of COVID-19, leaving the victims’ loved ones still searching for answers and justice.

What can be done to get them the concrete information that might give them closure? What does justice look like? What’s it like when the world forgets a tragedy that you live with every day?

GUEST: Hamed Esmaeilion had family on Flight 752
