Cockpit voice recorder of Lion Air jet that crashed off coast of Indonesia found

Indonesian officials say the cockpit voice recorder of the Lion Air jet that crashed in October has been found.

Ridwan Djamaluddin, a deputy maritime minister, told reporters today that the National Transportation Safety Committee had informed the ministry about the discovery.

He said human remains were also discovered at the seabed location.

The two-month-old Boeing 737 MAX 8 jet plunged into the Java Sea just minutes after taking off from Jakarta on October 29, killing all 189 people on board.

The vital information was taken from the black box, which was found by divers last week. Source: Breakfast
