No one was lucky enough to escape from the tragic when the fatal crash occured only 13 minutes after its takeoff at the North side of the Indonesian city.
Before the disaster, the Lion Air flight JT-610's pilot Bhavye Sunya (an Indian national) reported having 'technical difficulties’ and delivered a request for a turning back to the airport, which was granted right afterwards by the traffic control. Unfortunately, moments later, the plane had disappeared and went on to crashed 5,000 ft into the sea.

A technical record of the previous flight the Indonesian plane had, showed an 'unreliable' airspeed reading. Also, there had been a conflicting altitude reading done by the first officer and captain just a day before, that might be the premise for the fatal plane crash the next day.
Furthermore, the websites that got the flight's data showed that the plane was speeding up when it lost altitude.
The social media in the country started to get crowded with the pictures of the crash shared online by the head of disaster relief that showed the remains of the plane floating on the sea with personal belongings of the flight passengers.
