JAKARTA, NNC - The team of divers found the shattered head or cockpit of Lion Air JT-610 aircraft.

"The cockpit has been destroyed, it's shattered," Eskorta Squad Commander Armada I Corps, Colonel Isswarto, said at JICT, Tanjung Priok, on Wednesday, Nov 7.

Previously, joint SAR team had plan to lift Lion Air's cockpit on Wednesday. But because it was destroyed, the plan had to be suspended.

There is a possibility that if we try to lift it, it will be in a damaged condition.

Isswarto could yet confirm whether the search team will lift the plane's cockpit from the water in northern Karawang.

"I don't know, it could be in small pieces if we lift it up," he said, citing Antara.
