More Body Parts Found From Crashed Indonesian Jet
Hari Setiyono's son-in-law was on the crashed Indonesia Air jet that plunged into the sea with 189 people aboard.
“My daughter has no husband, my grandchild no longer has a father,” Setiyono told AFP.
Indonesian search teams on Tuesday recovered more remains at the site of a crashed Lion Air jet that plunged into the sea with 189 people aboard, as a report said it had suffered an instrument malfunction the day before.
The Boeing-737 MAX, which went into service just months ago, crashed into the Java Sea moments after it had asked to return to Jakarta on Monday.
Flight JT 610 sped up as it suddenly lost altitude and then vanished from radar 12 minutes after take-off, with authorities saying witnesses saw the jet plunge into the water.
The accident has resurrected concerns about the patchy safety record of Indonesia’s aviation industry.
Search teams have filled ten body bags with limbs and other human remains, Muhammad Syaugi, chief of the Indonesian national search and rescue agency told Metro TV. Dozens of divers are taking part in the recovery effort.
The parts were taken for identification and DNA testing at a Jakarta police hospital, where distraught relatives gathered.
The remains of a baby were among those found, according to national deputy police chief Ari Dono Sukmanto.
Another 14 bags filled with debris have also been collected, including shoes, items of clothing and a wallet.
“Everything on the surface of the water has been collected,” Syaugi said.
