JAKARTA, Indonesia—Navy divers interviewed on Indonesian television say they’ve recovered the crashed Lion Air jet’s flight recorder from the sea floor.

TV stations on Nov. 1 showed images of the device which was transferred from an inflatable vessel to a ship in a large white container.

Two navy divers described finding the device and bringing it to the surface. One said the fuselage of the plane was also seen.

The Boeing 737 MAX 8 plane crashed Monday just minutes after takeoff from Jakarta, killing all 189 people on board.
