Bassist Gabriela Lujan Maumus of the popular Argentinian shoegaze band Asalto Al Parque Zoologico died tragically today in a plane crash over the Alps.
The 28-year old was one of 150 passengers on board the flight from Barcelona to Dusseldorf that came down over the mountains in the south of France on Tuesday (March 24), killing everyone on board. It has been reported that the co-pilot "intentionally" attempted to crash the plane.
The band posted a statement on Facebook confirming the news, "We've been hit hard by the loss of Gabo and Sebastian... She was a cheerful girl, sweet, kind, polite, intelligent... We will miss you truly."
Maumus was on the flight with her boyfriend Sebastian Gabriel Greco, also 28, who also died.
