August 9, 2009 20:33

New York divers recovered a piece of a submerged helicopter and a fifth body Sunday as investigators searched the Hudson River for wreckage from the helicopter and a small plane that collided in midair, killing nine people. Investigators also were searching for pictures and video of Saturday's accident, which was seen by thousands out enjoying a beautiful summer day. Nine people - three members of a Pennsylvania family in the private plane, five Italian tourists and a pilot from New Jersey in the Liberty Tours helicopter - died in Saturday's collision. It was the city's worst air disaster since a 2001 commercial jet crash in Queens that killed 265 people.
