The Path to Disaster


Sriwijaya Air Flight SJ182 crashed into the sea near Laki and Lancang Island, part of the Thousand Islands cluster, just north of Jakarta, Saturday (1/9). Sixty-two passengers and crew on board, including 10 children, were assumed dead. All of them Indonesians.

Body parts and debris were found from the waters of the popular tourist islands. The discovery came as dozens of ships, helicopters, and divers from various agencies were deployed off the coast. Authorities have also pinpointed the black boxes' location - the cockpit voice and flight data recorders- from the crashed aircraft.

Soerjanto Tjahjanto, head of the National Transportation Safety Commission (KNKT), said they had located the position of the two black boxes. "The divers will start looking for them, and hopefully, we can get them soon."
