THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.
DARYN KAGAN, CNN ANCHOR: There is a development in the crash of the Air France Concorde jet that crashed just outside of Paris earlier this week.
Let's bring back Patrick Amar. He was talking with us earlier. He is with the French Transport Ministry, and he has the latest -- Patrick.
PATRICK AMAR, FRENCH TRANSPORT MINISTRY: Yes?
KAGAN: What is the new news?
AMAR: The new news, just when I was talking with you, I had the bad news that we discovered another body just near the accident in the crash.
KAGAN: So this was a body that was there. This is not somebody who was injured and then later died?
AMAR: No, no. We discovered it around the hotel, and it is probably someone we didn't know at this moment.
KAGAN: And so you believe it was somebody who was actually in the hotel when the plane crashed into it?
AMAR: Yes, probably, that's probably.
KAGAN: With the thought of that, is there the possibility that this death count can go up even higher?
AMAR: We can't know. That's the information we have at this moment. We don't know what can happen after.
KAGAN: The death toll now, in the wake of that Air France Concorde crash, is at 114.
AMAR: That is it, unfortunately.
KAGAN: Very unfortunate news. Patrick Amar, with the French Transport Ministry, thank you for at least bringing us that update. Appreciate that.
