Canadian police have recovered all 17 bodies from the wreckage of a helicopter that crashed in the freezing Atlantic off the coast of Newfoundland. The Sikorsky S-92 was carrying 18 workers to oil platforms on Thursday when it reported mechanical problems and ditched into the sea about 50 kilometers from shore. Remote controlled cameras have revealed that the cockpit was damaged, the fuselage cracked and the tail boom broken off, said lead investigator Mike Cunningham. One survivor and one body were recovered shortly after the crash. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said early Tuesday that the final seven bodies were recovered. Nine were recovered on Monday. "It certainly brings closure," RCMP Sgt. Wayne Newell said.
