Divers find voice recorder from downed Lion Air jet
Navy divers have located the cockpit voice recorder of a Lion Air jet that crashed into the Java Sea in October, Indonesian officials said, in a possible boost to the accident investigation. Ridwan Djamaluddin, a deputy maritime minister, said that remains of some of the 189 people who died in the crash were also discovered. ‘‘We got confirmation this morning from the National Transportation Safety Committee’s chairman,’’ he said. A spokesman for Indonesian navy said divers using high-tech equipment found the voice recorder beneath 8m of mud.
