The black boxes are the technical equipment on airplanes that could reveal reasons for the crash.
The box found was “heavily damaged,” state media said, noting that it was not immediately clear whether it was the one that recorded flight data or cockpit communications with air traffic controllers.
A Boeing 737-800 flight carrying 132 people nosedived Monday afternoon in a rural, mountainous part of the southern region of Guangxi. Authorities haven’t confirmed any fatalities or shared why the crash happened.
Rescue workers haven’t found any survivors from this week’s crash, authorities said late Tuesday.
