DHAKA: A Chinese family successfully rang the mobile phone of a passenger on board Malaysia Airlines plane MH370 which is still missing after it lost contact with the ground on Saturday.
A video clip showing the family member dialing the number made its rounds online on Sunday.
The call got connected, but no one picked up, reports The Straits Times.
The Chinese media also reported that a man successfully made a call to the mobile phone of his elder brother, who is a MH370 passenger.
He made a total of three calls, but no one answered. The man, who spoke to reporters at a Malaysia Airlines briefing in Beijing, was not named.
It was unclear if the video clip and Chinese media reports referred to the same family.
