Service held for victims of Hudson crash

NEW YORK - A private prayer service was held Wednesday for the five Italian victims of a collision between a small plane and a helicopter over the Hudson River.

The last two bodies were pulled from the wreckage Tuesday. The medical examiner is expected to confirm whether the bodies are those of the plane's pilot and passenger.

Workers have been going through the underwater debris from the crash since Saturday, trying to recover the remains of the nine victims as well as evidence to determine how a single-engine Piper plane and a sightseeing helicopter collided in the air between Manhattan and New Jersey.
