FLIGHT 447

17 Bodies Found From Crash

Military authorities in Brazil are reporting that 17 bodies have been found in the Atlantic Ocean as investigators attempt to piece together the murky story of Flight 447’s mysterious crash. Four of the bodies were men, and four were women found in the area where the flight, which was carrying 228 passengers, was thought to have crashed. Luggage, a part of the wing, and two seats have also been found. Investigators say they will be able to tell whether the plane exploded from residue on the bodies and if water is found in the victims' lungs. The plane might have been flying too fast or too slowly through thunderstorms, but the cause of the crash is still unknown.
