PANGKALAN BUN, Indonesia - Search crews have now recovered 30 bodies from the AirAsia crash, and an Indonesian navy official says five of them were found still strapped in their seats.

Col. Yayan Sofiyan, commander of the warship Bung Tomo, told MetroTV that the five were among seven bodies retrieved from the Java Sea and taken to an Indonesian vessel Friday. Indonesian search and rescue chief Henry Bambang Soelistyo later said a total of 30 bodies have been recovered from Flight 8501.

There were 162 passengers and crew onboard the plane that went down Sunday, half-way through a flight from Indonesia to Singapore.
