Divers continued to hunt for a second black box Sunday from a downed Indonesian jet which killed all 189 on board. Investigators are trying to retrieve and analyse data from the first flight recorder, which was recovered but was  damaged. The Lion Air Boeing 737 MAX, which only went into service in August, crashed on October 29 into the Java Sea. 

Air traffic control lost contact with the flight only 13 minutes after it took off from the capital, Jakarta, heading north to the tin-mining town of Pangkal Pinang.

Video obtained by Reuters shot on November 2 showed divers collecting debris from the downed jet, after a week of searching in a shallow sea with strong currents and energy pipelines.
