Indonesia TV shows footage of objects in the sea, possibly parts of the missing AirAsia jet.
Objects that resemble an emergency slide, plane door, and a square box-like item have been spotted 10 km from the last position of the missing AirAsia jet, according to Indonesian authorities.
“We spotted about 10 big objects and many more small white-colored objects which we could not photograph,” Indonesian Air Force official Agus Dwi Putranto said at a press conference.
Several victims have been spotted in the search zone of the missing AirAsia flight, the Indonesian Navy stated. Objects resembling parts of the plane were seen in the same area.
“There was a man swaying on the waves. After I looked at the photo carefully on my laptop, I understood it was a human body,” a lieutenant of the Indonesian Air Force told local media.
Meanwhile, Indonesian authorities are checking if what they saw are bodies or survivors, navy officials stated.
All sighted suspected debris will be collected and sent to Pangkalanbun town, the Indonesian search agency chief says.
The Indonesian search agency chief said he’s 95% sure debris off the Kalimantan coast is from the missing AirAsia jet.
