REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JAKARTA -- Families and friends of victims of the Lion Air JT610 accident began arriving at the National Police Hospital R Sahid Sukanto in East Jakarta on Monday. They hoped to seek information about their loved ones who were on the plane.

A worker from state-owned construction company Nindya Karya, Titot Hendrito, said that he visited the hospital to look for three of his relatives, including a co-worker named Dyah Damayanti, and his university friends named Janu Daryoko and Sita Rusmi.

"I am here to seek information about three of them. Damayanti was on billing duty to Angkasa Pura, as we have a project in the Pangkal Pinang airport. The other two were my friends at the university and both of them were working at Josmart," he noted.

Hendrito admitted he found out that three of his friends were on the plane after reading the passenger manifest of the Lion Air JT-610 plane, which was circulated in the short message application group Whatsapp.

"We all are still waiting for information," he added.
