Search Continues for Missing F-16V Pilot 續搜失聯飛官 昨尋獲生理組織已送化驗

Human fingers, skin, and other physiological tissues have been found in search and rescue operations after an F-16V fighter jet crashed into the ocean on Jan 11. The military did not confirm if they belong to pilot Chen Yi, while prosecutors and Chen' s family are waiting for the examination results. 


The blue ice bucket contains what was salvaged from the sea earlier. Military personnel at the scene did not want to disclose the content, only saying that they did not rule out that it was related to the missing pilot. 

It's the fourth day after pilot Chen Yi has lost contact, and the search and rescue operation started early in the morning again. The search area planned by the military was the same. However, the night before, the military confirmed that at 4 p.m. on the 13th, besides finding ejection chair parts, a large number of wreckage parts and physiological tissues, such as skin and the finger, were also found. They were sent to the Chiayi City Funeral Home on the evening of the 13th and Chen's family members were invited to accompany the prosecutor for inspection.

Hsieh Wen-chi, Chief Prosecutor, Chiayi District Prosecutors Office: “The prosecutor and the forensic doctor examined skin, bones, and other parts last night. The specimen and family members' DNA have been collected and sent to forensics for identification.”

Military: “Finding the parts is a good thing. It offers closure for the family. We will ask headquarters for a unified explanation and presentation.”

The prosecutor said that a thumb, skin, and bones were recovered and being compared with the DNA of family members. At the search and rescue scene, enthusiastic fishermen found that the helmet was stuck on the shore. The fisherman said that the helmet does not look like a pilot's helmet. They will go out to sea after the sea is stable, and will carefully look for any debris in deep water areas. 

 

 

 

藍色的冰桶裡裝著稍早在墜海地點打撈到的東西,內容物是什麼?在場的軍方人員不願透露,但不排除跟失聯的飛官有關。

飛官陳奕失聯第四天,搜救行動同樣一早就啟動。軍方規劃的搜尋範圍跟之前劃定的區域相同,不過前一天晚上,軍方證實13日下午四點,除了發現彈射椅部分零件還有大量飛機殘骸外,還找到像是手指皮膚等生理組織,並送往嘉義市立殯儀館,請來家屬陪同檢察官相驗。

嘉義地檢署主任檢察官謝雯璣表示:「包括皮膚,骨頭等等。經檢察官與法醫師於昨晚進行相驗,已採集檢體及家屬之DNA,送法醫研究所鑑定。」

軍方人員表示:「找到就是圓滿,那也給家屬一個交代,我們會請司令部統一說明。」

檢方表示撈到的物品約為拇指,皮膚跟骨頭已採集家屬DNA比對,預估晚間結果會出爐。而搜救現場則有熱心漁民發現安全帽卡在岸邊。漁民說安全帽看起來不像飛官頭盔,會視海象平穩後出海後打撈,並沿著水深的地區再仔細尋找是否還有殘骸。
