“Police received a bag of body parts; they were later transported to Kramat Jati Hospital. More body parts, as well as life jackets from the aircraft, were also found. Later in the afternoon, more body parts and wreckage were recovered from the crash site. Rescuers managed to recover a life vest, pieces from the aircraft’s fuselage and a destroyed wheel of the Boeing 737. Most of the wreckage were found at a depth of 17-23 meters.

Parts of the hydraulic system of the Boeing 737-524, seating number and a part from the registration code of the aircraft had been recovered from the crash site. The scattered debris and the small pieces of the wreckage indicated a high-speed impact.”
