One Black Box Found In Chinese Plane Crash

WUZHOU, China (AP) — China says one of two black boxes from the China Eastern plane crash was found in severely damaged condition.

The recorder is so damaged that they are not able to tell whether it is the flight data recorder or the cockpit voice recorder.

Mao Yanfeng, the director of the accident investigation division of the Civil Aviation Authority of China, told a news conference Wednesday that an all-out effort is being made to find the other black box.

Recovering the so-called black boxes is considered key to figuring out what caused the crash.

132 people were onboard when the plane went down. There has been no sign of survivors.
