Rescuers ended a search for 16 people missing in an Atlantic helicopter crash on Friday evening, saying there was no likelihood of finding survivors. Rescue official Maj. Paul Doucette said crews quit an active search Friday evening, nearly 34 hours after the helicopter went down about 30 miles off the coast of Newfoundland. "We've gone beyond that 24-hour life expectancy time for someone in an immersion suit," Maj. Denis McGuire of the Joint Rescue Co-ordination Centre said in announcing the end of the search. One survivor and the body of another person were found after the Sikorsky S-92 issued a distress call and ditched into the sea on Thursday. The helicopter had been en route to offshore oil facilities.
