FORTY bodies of tragic Air Asia crash victims are found floating in water
Rescue workers searching for AirAsia flight 8501 have recovered scores of victims from the sea off Borneo Island, the Indonesian Navy said.
At least 40 bodies were discovered alongside luggage (top right), a plane door and an emergency slide floating in the water 100 miles off Indonesia (bottom right) earlier today, following three days of searching. The recovery came as devastated relatives of AirAsia crash victims collapsed in grief (top and bottom left) and were taken to hospital after an Indonesian television station showed uncensored footage of corpses floating in the sea (main image). The Airbus A320-200 was 42 minutes into its flight from Surabaya in Indonesia to Singapore on Sunday when it vanished with 162 people on board.
