Posted: Updated:

A mother in Amsterdam narrowly missed Malaysia Airways flight MH-17 that was shot down in Ukraine near the Russian border, is overcome with emotion as she clutches her sleeping baby.

"Like, I am shaken, I don't even know what to do and I feel physically sick. And I was from, like, the Hilton in The Hague coming to the airport in the taxi and I was just crying. I am just thinking that I feel like I have been given a second chance and hopefully this flight will get there safely and I will see my family again. I need to go," she said.

Nearly 300 people on board died in the crash.

U.S. intelligence officials confirm the plane was shot down by a surface-to-air missile.
