On social media, 10-month-old Darina Gromova has become the symbol of the tragic Russian plane crash in Sinai after photos of her circulated stating she was the crash's “youngest victim.”

In one of the photos, Gromova is seen in St. Petersburg Airport in Russia before her flight with her parents to Egypt's Sharm al-Sheikh resort city.

The Russian airliner crashed on Saturday in a remote mountainous part of Egypt's Sinai Peninsula 23 minutes after taking off from a popular Red Sea resort.



The crash killed all 224 people on board, including 25 children.

Most of those who died were vacationers from St. Petersburg and the surrounding region who were due to return home at midday on Saturday from Sharm el-Sheikh.

Reasons for the crash are still unknown and an international group of investigators are working with Egyptian authorities.
