Germanwings Co-pilot told Lufthansa about episode of depression

Airline says it's shared documents with prosecutors

A new revelation from the Germanwings plane disaster: Lufthansa says the co-pilot of the jet that crashed in the French Alps last week told his flight school in 2009 that he had had a “serious depressive episode.'”

The airline says the note was found in emails that Andreas Lubitz sent to the Lufthansa flight school when he resumed his training after an interruption.

The airline says it’s provided the documents to prosecutors and declined to make any further comment.

Questions have been raised about what the airline knew about Lubitz’s condition before last week’s fatal crash.
