Diver Dies in Lion Air Crash Search Operations

JAKARTA Indonesian authorities confirmed on Saturday the death of one of the divers searching for the wreckage of the Lion Air plane that crashed on Oct. 29 in the Java sea, with all 189 people on board feared dead.

The deceased was identified as Syachrul Anto, a member of the Indonesian Diving Rescue Team, who died on Friday evening.

National Search and Rescue Agency director Muhammad Syaugi said that the diver lost consciousness during a dive and died later at the Koja Regional Hospital in Jakarta.

Lion Air flight JT610, a Boeing 737 Max8 airplane, crashed on Oct. 29 in the Java Sea with 189 people on board, 13 minutes after taking off from Jakarta to fly to a neighboring island.

The plane suffered a mechanical fault the day before the crash and Lion Air replaced its technical director earlier this week.
