A shocking map shows the last moments of a Boeing 737-500 before it vanished after reportedly falling 10,000ft in just sixty seconds.

The Sriwijaya Air passenger jet is believed to have plunged into the sea with more than 60 people on board, including 10 children.

Air traffic website Flightradar24 reports the plane descended by over 10,000ft in around a minute.

The site's map of the plane's route shows it flying over the sea, before taking a sharp turn and disappearing.

The aircraft appears to have plummeted into the water just four minutes after its departure from Soekarno-Hatta International Airport in Jakarta, Indonesia.

The Boeing 737-500 'classic' lost signal just after 7.30am (GMT) as it was heading to Pontianak, in West Kalimantan province, according to Flightradar24.
