Scavenger Gets Reward for Flight Data Recorder
The missing flight data recorder from a Peruvian airliner that crashed last week has been turned in by a man who scavenged it from the wreckage, a prosecutor said.
Cesar Arroyo said the man, Cesar Cabello, handed it over to civil aviation investigators in exchange for a $500 reward posted by TANS Peru airlines.
Hundreds of local residents had taken items from the crash site. More than $300,000 of a $760,000 cash shipment that the plane had been carrying was still missing, Arroyo said.
An injured Peruvian passenger died over the weekend, raising the death toll to 40.
