(Newser) – Following the recovery of the black box and cockpit recorder from the 2009 Air France crash, officials have pulled a passenger's body from the ocean. The French Gendarmerie says the remains, which were still attached to a plane seat, were pulled up this morning. The first search effort after the doomed flight led to 50 bodies being recovered; all 228 people aboard the plane were killed. Recovering the latest body involved great technical difficulties, however, meaning it may not be possible to recover all the bodies found in the latest search, the AP notes.
