HOBOKEN, N.J. - (AP) - New York police say the last two bodies have been pulled from the wreckage of a collision between a small plane and a sightseeing helicopter over the Hudson River.

NYPD chief spokesman Paul Browne said Tuesday investigators believe the bodies were those of the plane pilot and a passenger.

They were among nine people killed in Saturday's crash.

The bodies were found as recovery workers salvaged their first piece of the plane. It was found Monday in about 60 feet of water.

The Piper airplane collided with the helicopter in the congested airspace between New Jersey and Manhattan.For chopper footage from retrieval of plane wreckage in the Hudson River, go to channel 612 on your iO digital cable box and select iO Extra.
