Divers Recover Cockpit Voice Recorder From Lion Air Crash

The cockpit voice recorder from the Lion Air plane that crashed late last year has been found.

Officials  told reporters  Monday Indonesian Navy divers recovered the device not too far from the crash site in the Java Sea.

The new Boeing 737 MAX crashed into the sea Oct.

29 just minutes after takeoff, killing all 189 people on board.   The cockpit voice recorder, also known as the CVR, was one of two recorders on board the plane.

The second device, the flight data recorder, was found back in November.

But authorities are hopeful the CVR will help them determine exactly what caused the crash.  Information retrieved from the plane's flight data recorder shows that the pilots had problems with the plane's automatic stall-prevention system.

But it's unclear why they failed to turn the automatic safety feature off, like a previous crew had when they dealt with a similar issue.

Officials say the CVR is in good condition, and they hope to have the data downloaded from it in the next few days.
