AirAsia plane wreckage found, bodies being recovered

From the thread quoting mandala499:

“The information I got is that from 32000 to 36300 and down again to 24000ft or so took just over a minute.”

“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.

The bodies so far found have been brought to an Indonesian Navy ship, National Search and Rescue Director Supriyadi told. The corpses were swollen, but intact, and did not have life jackets on, he said, as cited by AP.

Several family members of missing passengers burst into tears or fainted when they saw footage of bodies floating in the water.
