    The cockpit voice recorder retrieved from the crashed FlyDubai passenger jet was badly damaged in the fall and investigators are trying to piece it together, the deputy chief of the Interstate Aviation Committee (IAC or MAC) said on Sunday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On Saturday, FlyDubai Boeing 737-800 plane coming from Dubai crashed while attempting landing amid poor weather conditions at the Rostov-on-Don Airport (ROV). All people on board, including 55 passengers and seven crew members, died in the crash.

    "As for the voice recorder, it was seriously damaged, its cable was destroyed, so we are working to restore it. We will continue in the morning," MAK’s Sergei Zaiko told Russian newspaper Kommersant.

    Investigators earlier found the crashed plane's first and second flight data recorders, and its first voice recorder.

    The Investigative Committee presented three versions of the cause of the tragedy: a technical fault, severe weather conditions and human error.
