All 108 people on board, including seven crew members, five children and one infant, survived the impact.

According

Transportation Safety Committee (KNKT) is collecting flight data and
planning to lift the body of the downed Boeing 737 aircraft to the
beach.

The Indonesian pilot, who had more than
10,000 flying hours, and the Indian co-pilot tested negative for drugs
and alcohol in preliminary tests.

The aircraft landed successfully in two other cities before the crash, Lion Air General Affairs Director Edward Sirait.

carrier, holding about a 45 percent market share in the country.-VNA
