BREAKING! 189 Passengers Likely Dead In Indonesian Plane Crash
Lion Air flight JT 610 was carrying 189 passengers when it took off and then crashed into the sea 13 minutes later. The flight was from Jakarta to Pangkal Pinang, but the pilot tried to call it off quickly and asked to turn the plane around. The Boeing-737 MAX was in the process of returning to Jakarta when the plane disappeared over the Java Sea. According to the flight data, the plane accelerated and then lost altitude quickly.
So far rescuers have only been able to recover 6 bodies, they fear the rest are lost.
“My prediction is that nobody survived because the victims that we found, their bodies were no longer intact and it’s been hours so it is likely 189 people have died,” search and rescue agency operational director Bambang Suryo Aji told reporters.”
The plane was relatively new as it had only been purchased back in August. But it had recently been having issues.
It was an experienced crew and a short flight.
“The captain of the plane, Bhavye Suneja, an Indian national, had more than 6,000 flight hours, and his copilot, named Harvino, had logged more than 5,000, according to a statement posted by Lion Air.
Speaking to reporters at the carrier’s headquarters in Jakarta, Sirait said the plane was “airworthy” and that the pilot had carried out all preflight inspections according to procedure. He added that the pilots had passed mandatory drug screening.”
It is still uncertain as to what caused the crash. To make matters worse the emergency locator transmitter is not transmitting.
