Last two crash victims found

August 12, 2009|TIMES WIRE REPORTS

Two bodies were pulled from the wreckage of a small plane that collided with a sightseeing helicopter over the Hudson River, meaning all nine crash victims have been recovered, police said.

Medical examiners will determine whether the bodies are those of the plane's pilot and a passenger. Saturday's crash killed three Pennsylvania residents on the plane and five Italian tourists and a pilot on the helicopter.

The last two bodies were recovered as workers salvaged their first piece of the heavily damaged plane from the murky, fast-moving Hudson. The aircraft was found earlier in about 60 feet of water.
