Heartbreaking photos show shoes belonging to Lion Air crash victims piled up at the recovery site in Tanjung Priok port in Jakarta, Indonesia.
Images captured by Reuters photographers show the full extent of Monday’s disaster that likely killed all 189 people on board, including pictures of several pairs of baby shoes.
As of Wednesday night, rescuers had not found any survivors from the Boeing 737 Max 8’s crash into the Java Sea, but the Indonesian navy located a 22-meter-long object 32 meters deep on Tuesday night that they think is the hull of the 40-meter-long plane.
So far, 49 body bags have been filled by rescue teams and given to investigators, CNN reported on Wednesday.
The rest of the bodies are probably stuck in the wreckage of the plane on the seabed, according to Bambang Suryo Aji, the director of operations for Indonesia’s National Search and Rescue Agency.
Rescue crews have focused their attention on finding the black box, which records flight data, Sky News reported.
