The body of DILG Secretary Jesse Robredo was recovered at a depth of 180 feet.

Mar Roxas said in a press briefing that, "the body arrived at the surface at around 8:15 this morning."

He said, "Fuselage, nakabaligtad kaya medyo kumplikado ang pag-retrieve dahil hindi nila masyadong ma-disturb 'yung fuselage at baka mapunta sa mas malalim na lugar."

Secretary Robredo's retrieval has been very complicated for he'd been under water for more than 2 days from the crashed date.

According to DOTC Mar Roxas, the retrieval operation will continue for the two remaining people who are also trap on the crashed plane.

Roxas said, "Scuba tanks at iba pang pangangailangan ay pinapadala sa underwater para magpatuloy 'yung retrieval operation," and added, "Tuloy po ang recovery operations... Hindi ito para kay Sec. Jess lang. The divers and the others are being deployed now to recover the others."

Meanwhile, from Roxas press briefing that our President Noynoy Aquino has now informed the family left by Sec. Robredo.

According still to Roxas, PNoy had been very silent about the progress of the retrieval.
