Jesse Robredo plane wreckage underwater video released

An underwater video of the plane wreckage where the remains of DILG secretary Jesse Robredo and two pilots were found was released to GMA News.

The plane that carried Robredo from Mactan, Cebu to Naga crashed about 800 meters off the coast of Masbate after it failed to make an emergency landing in the city’s airport Saturday afternoon.

The wreckage was found by foreign technical divers 180 feet below the sea three days after the incident. Robredo’s body was recovered around 8am on Tuesday, but the bodies of the pilots have not been pulled out as the planes position was inverted.

Retrieval operations personnel are expected to make an attempt to pull the whole plane up to the surface Wednesday.
