The Captain (15,000 hours) took command after the First Officer lost sight of the runway in the rain, on final approach. They may have hit a
microburst, as they're saying there was a problem on approach, the weather changed, and they dropped into the ocean. The FDR has been recovered, but
they're having problems with the CVR, due to waves. The entire aircraft will be moved to a nearby beach soon.
