The plane involved in Saturday’s collision with a tour helicopter over the Hudson River has been removed, along with two bodies that authorities said were trapped inside.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers brought a special vessel with a crane attached to raise the body of the Piper PA-32 through 60 feet of water. Divers had attached chains and straps to the body of the wreckage, making the move possible.
