UPDATE: Indonesia Sriwijaya Air plane crashes in waters off Jakarta

Human body parts and debris of Indonesia Sriwijaya Air plane were found, Captain EKo Surya Hadi, commander of Trisula coast guard ship, told a local TV.


A passenger plane of Indonesia’s Sriwijaya Air carrying dozens of people crashed into waters off Jakarta on Saturday.

Human body parts and debris of the plane were found, Captain EKo Surya Hadi, commander of Trisula coast guard ship, told a local TV.

The Boeing 737-500 plane, which was flying to Pontianak city in West Kalimantan province, crashed shortly after taking off from the Soekarno-Hatta international airport in Jakarta, Surya said.
Human body parts and debris of the plane were found, Captain EKo Surya Hadi, commander of Trisula coast guard ship, told a local TV.
“We found body parts, life jackets, avtur (aviation turbine fuel) and debris of the plane,” he told the local TV.

Rescue teams were heading to the scene after receiving information from the AIRNAV Indonesia, which is responsible for providing all air traffic control services across Indonesia, spokesman of the National Search and Rescue Office Yusuf Latief told Xinhua.
On Oct. 29, 2018, all 189 people aboard were killed after a Boeing 737 Max plane of Indonesia’s Lion Air crashed into the Java Sea shortly after taking off from Jakarta.
