Crashed Lion Air plane seen off Indonesia

55

 

As search and rescue efforts intensify for the crashed Lion Air jet that crashed on Monday minutes after takeoff, Indonesian military officials say the plane may have been found in the Java Sea.

Hadi Tjahjanto, the armed forces chief, said a search and rescue team had identified the possible seabed location of the jet.

The team had previously found debris and some human remains from the wreckage but not the main fuselage and the black boxes.

The 2-month-old Boeing jet crashed just minutes after takeoff from Jakarta, killing all 189 people on board, including two children and a baby.
Tjahjanto said a team would be sent to the identified location to confirm the findings.
Relatives of the victims have provided samples for DNA tests to help identify the victims of the crash.
