AirAsia crash victims found strapped to their seats

After nearly a week of searching for the victims of AirAsia Flight 8501, rescue teams battling monsoon rains had their most successful day yet today, more than tripling the number of bodies pulled from the Java Sea, some still strapped to their seats.

It remains unclear what caused the plane to plunge into the sea. The accident was AirAsia’s first since it began operations in 2001, quickly becoming one of the region’s most popular low-cost carriers.
