Body wearing lifejacket reported found off Malacca.

The Beijing News reports a source claiming to be a local volunteer assisting in the search for missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 has found a dead body wearing a lifejacket

The way this reads it is stating that the newspaper's source is the one who has found the body.

Just making sure I'm reading this right.

Local volunteer being, I assume, someone under some organization's group with a leader and official spokesperson.

A volunteer can be anyone, a single individual or being a part of a group of people.

If MH370 crossed Peninsular Malaysia at relatively low altitude, some of those phones could have established contact with cell phone towers along the flight path, if only for short periods. Such contacts are logged by the telephone operators even if no call is made. MH knows the numbers of most phones on board because they were used for passenger registration.

More interesting is the fact that smartphone apps contact certain websites automatically when a cell connection is established. Families of some Chinese passengers are reported to have observed that QQ (similar to Gmail chat) showed the missing passengers as logged in. (Login could be entirely automatic under control of a smartphone app.) If true, this means that QQ (as well as the Malaysian cell phone carrier, and the respective governments) have a log of the IP addresses associated with passenger smartphones during the fleeting connection with the Peninsular cell phone towers.

Another claim in relation to phones is probably true but irrelevant - families of passengers claim that when they attempted to call the passengers' phones, they encountered a continuous ring tone (ring out) rather than being diverted to voicemail or an error message after one or two rings.

The presence of a lifejacket pretty much rules out that the body came from the plane... does it not?

The Beijing News has reported that a source claiming to be local volunteer assisting in the search for missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 has found a dead body wearing a lifejacket in an area of the Malacca Strait. In a single-paragraph report, the website of the Chinese-language newspaper said that it was seeking to establish the reliability of the claim.

According to the data from Rodzali, if it was the missing plane it would have flown for 45 minutes and lost only about 5,000 feet in altitude.

There was no word on which direction it was headed...

A position 200 miles northwest of Penang, in the northern part of the Strait of Malacca, would put the plane roughly south of Phuket and east of the tip of Indonesia's Aceh province and India's Nicobar island chain.

Not necessarily. On over water flights, many times there are life vests (personal flotation devices) present and not just the seat bottom. When crossing the North Atlantic we were required to have 1 PFD for each occupant and life rafts to accommodate all bodies on board.

I have been on local flights (DC to Buffalo) where there is actually a life jacket attached under the seat. I know it is rare on these flights but it is possible. I always remember the flight crew talking about inflating the vest by pulling a cord or breathing into a tube

If this is true the families will be even more pissed off. Search the wrong area for days, now find a body, that looks like it went through at least part of a survival process...

May these poor souls be found and rest in peace...

No i did not miss the point, i was responding to your weird assumption that a volunteer would be a part of an organisation and have a spokesperson, which is not true at all.

I fly quite a bit domestically in the US and internationally. 90% of flights I've been on have a life jacket under each seat, using the seat cushion as a secondary flotation device.

on the 11pm news right now..newscaster says the families are calling and the phones are still ringing...still talking about the pilot having pretty ladies in the cockpit on an earlier flight....that's all they said
Yeah I don't think this wreck will be found until things cool off and it's almost forgotten. Then they can put a junker out there somewhere and claim it was this flight. Well that is if it's even necessary at that point. We all might be preoccupied with something else a bit more troubling by then. But if anyone finds it now, it will be the Chinese.


That is ridiculous to think a "junker" would fool anyone, no matter when it is found.

And do you get 60 hours of battery life with your cellphone? Do you know anyone that does?

International roaming often leads to a phone ringing even when the phone is off or not in range of service.

You cannot fool air investigators with any-old-airframe to be a B-777.

Are you speculating, or stating fact? Please make that clear.

This may be the manufacturer of safety equipment on 777.

Notice, life jackets are certainly on planes, and that the life raft does have the word "Board" on it, with an arrow. Similar to the one reportedly seen by the fishermen.

I believe this may be the one the fisherman found:

For a Malaysian airline would it necessarily be in English?
