TRAGIC.......Body found inside plane days after it ditched into Pacific lagoon

The airline initially said all 35 passengers and 12 crew aboard evacuated safely.

A male passenger's body has been found inside an airliner that ditched and sank in a lagoon last week after missing the runway on a remote Pacific island, officials said.

The Air Niugini Boeing 737-800 was attempting to land at Weno airport in Micronesia on Friday morning but fell short of the runway and splashed down in Chuuk lagoon.

The airline initially said all 35 passengers and 12 crew aboard evacuated safely.

But divers examining the submerged wreck had made a grim discovery.

"It is with great sadness I confirm that the body of a male passenger was discovered by divers today as they conducted a further search of P2-PXE and the surrounding area in Chuuk lagoon," Air Niugini chief executive Tahawar Durrani said in a statement late Monday.

The Micronesian government said US Navy divers recovered the body from the aircraft. Further details about the deceased were not available.

The government said nine people were injured in the crash, four of them critically.

It said an investigation team from the Federated States of Micronesia was working with officials from Papua New Guinea and the United States to determine the cause of the crash.

"Plans are underway to recover the black box from the submerged airplane," it said in a statement.

Air Niugini said Friday it had been informed that "the weather was very poor with heavy rain and reduced visibility at the time of incident".

Friends, Jesus Christ is coming soon.  Prepare to meet your Lord and Saviour clothed with spotless garment. He knows you, where you live and what you are struggling with.  He wants to help you, if you will come to Him today. 

Repent of your sins, believe the word of God and accept His son Jesus as Saviour and Lord of your life. He will give you a new life, victory and eternal life. 

Will you accept Him today?

Say this Prayer: 

Lord Jesus I come to you as a sinner.
I am sorry for my sins, forgive me.
I believe you died for my sins, and was raised for my justification. 
Come into my heart be my Lord and Saviour, 
Give me the grace to serve You in truth and spirit. 
Thank You for saving my soul - I am born again!

His grace be with you all.
