ex-husband. she's holding out for more money. those are some of our top stories on this wednesday, january 7th. >> announcer: from abc news, this is "world news now." good morning. we begin with breaking news from indonesia. the tail section of the airasia plane has been found. >> they are hopeful the voice and data recorders are still in the tail. muhammad lila on the line for us. let us know how big of a deal is this? >> good morning t.j. and reena. no question this is a massive, massive development. first, we're getting a look at these first pictures of this airasia flight. it's resting on the floor of the java sea. these pictures are simply haunting. you can make out the logo. it says airasia. you can see the "a" on the plane
2:32 am
and some sort of door. may be the emergency door. we don't know. those pictures are haunting. this is important for a couple of reasons. first, the tail of the plane is typically where you have the plane's voice recorder and data recorder. as long as those black boxes didn't move or shift when it was entering the ocean, it could mean they're just inches away from finding those important pieces of equipment. and secondly, there could be more bodies in there. this is what indonesian officials have said. once they find the main part of the plain, they think they'll find a while lot of bodies inside. that's the other part of this is now that they've found it they might be able to pull out a significant number of bodies. today a big development on both of those fronts. >> we're talking about family members still grieving and still hoping. the vast majority of those passengers haven't been found. what are the chances that airasia might be able to really recover them? you think they found the tail that the larger section will be
2:33 am
discovered as well? >> it's an interesting question because over the last several days, they've still been finding bodies. we don't know whether they've been found under water or floating on the wart. they've been finding bodies. at least 40 bodies have been found. there were 162 on board. we know also some of the bodies were found reportedly still wearing their seat belts and strapped into their seats. if the plane went down intact and you know whether it broke up underwater is a different story. down intact, then there could be a lot of bodies still inside the fuselage. and the ceo of airasia tweeting that he's hopeful, it sounds like they found the tail. the priority now should be to find the rest of the bodies because in indonesian culture, the bodies should be buried as soon as possible. the ceo saying that he considers it a priority now to find the rest of the bodies so that the families can have peace.
