10:50 a.m.

Several rows of wooden coffins are lying outside the hospital in Medan, Indonesia's third-largest city, where remains of victims of the C-130 Hercules plane crash are being brought in ambulances.

Officers wearing face masks and white gloves are seen carrying the coffins with the bodies that have been identified into trucks for transport to families.

The death toll from Tuesday's crash jumped to more than 140, indicating a growing list of victims from the neighborhood where the plane went down shortly after takeoff.

The air force says there were 122 people on the plane including military personnel and their families.

A backhoe has been digging at the crash site, which has been turned into a pile of smoldering concrete. The tail of the plane is still standing in the middle of the neighborhood.
