WUZHOU, China (AP) – Hundreds of searchers wearing rubber boots and full rain gear are heading into muddy, forested hills in southern China to try to find the second black box from a China Eastern passenger jet that crashed in southern China with 132 people on board earlier this week.

Three days after the crash, officials said they had found 183 pieces of the plane including engine parts and cockpit items, 21 objects belonging to victims and some human remains.

One of the black boxes was found on Wednesday.

The Boeing 737-800 was cruising at 29,000 feet (8,800 meters) when it suddenly nose-dived into a remote mountainous area.

No survivors have been found.
