So Sad! Families Mourn As Bodies And Debris From AirAsia 8501 Found In Java Sea

Posted in: , ,

Indonesia has been thrown into mourning as officials confirmed the worst for relatives of those who had family on the missing AirAsia QZ8501 flight that disappeared two days ago. Indonesian search and rescue chief Bambang Soelistyo has said that several bodies have been recovered after debris from the plane was spotted about 10 kilometers (6 miles) from the aircraft's last known location over the Java Sea.

CNN reports that Soelistyo said the debris was discovered when a crew on a military aircraft spotted the shadow of an object that looked like a plane in the water. Further searching found floating objects believed to be the bodies of passengers, and then what appeared to be an emergency exit of the plane.
