SINGAPORE, December 30. /TASS/. The search at the probable crash site of the AirAsia jet is suspended due to bad weather, chief of Indonesian national search and rescue agency Bambang Soelistyo said, noting the search operation would be continued as long as possible.
“Waves are 2-3 meters high in the air disaster area,” he said. “The search may also continue at night” with special equipment, he added. Three Indonesian ships are staying at the place where fragments of airliner Airbus A320-200 were found and three Singaporean naval ships will arrive there.
Meanwhile, Soelistyo noted that rescuers had spotted only three dead passengers possibly from the crashed jet, but not 40 as it was reported earlier. The agency chief recalled that “the door to the passenger cabin and a hatch of the luggage compartment were found in the sea 160 kilometres southwest of the town of Pangkalan Bun.”
The AirAsia airliner disappeared from the radar screens, staying in the area of Kalimantan Island (Borneo), around 40 minutes after the departure from Indonesia to Singapore. The A320-200 jet was carrying 155 passengers and seven crewmembers.
