Lion Air crash: Families 'still hoping for a miracle' as search intensifies

Jakarta: "I hope for a miracle and that he is still alive," said Lutfiani Eka Putri of her husband Deryl Fida Febrianto, who was on board Lion Air flight JT610 when it crashed on Monday (Oct 29).
The couple got married just two weeks ago.
His last message to her was from the plane at 6.12am, with a selfie by the window. At 6.15am, he stopped replying to her messages.
The Lion Air plane vanished from radar 13 minutes after taking off from Jakarta, plunging into the Java Sea moments after it had asked to return to the Indonesian capital.
Deryl, 22, was on the flight to Pangkal Pinang city, a jumping-off point for tourists to the nearby Belitung beach where he was due to begin work on a cruise ship.
"When I saw the news, I matched the flight number with the ticket photo Deryl had sent," Lutfiani, 23, said. "I immediately started crying."
The plane was piloted by Indian Captain Bhavye Suneja, a 31-year-old originally from New Delhi. Suneja died in the crash, the Indian Embassy in Indonesian has confirmed.
