Eight dead, one survivor in Indonesian plane crash
By Agustinos Beo Da Costa
The Dimonim Air passenger plane carrying nine people, including a 12-year old child who survived, lost contact with air traffic control on Saturday afternoon and was later found by local residents in Pegunungan Bintang district.
Indonesia has a patchy aviation safety record with frequent accidents. An AirAsia flight from Surabaya to Kuala Lumpur crashed in the Java Sea in late 2014, killing all 162 people on board. (Writing by Kanupriya Kapoor; Editing by Mark Potter)
