HOBOKEN, N.J. -- New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg says a fifth body has been recovered from the wreckage of a helicopter-plane crash above the Hudson River.
Divers and police boats are searching for pieces of the submerged helicopter and small plane in the water off of Hoboken.
Nine people died in Saturday's collision, including three members of a Pennsylvania family in the private plane. Five Italian tourists and a pilot from New Jersey were in the helicopter.
It's the city's worst air disaster since a 2001 plane crash in Queens killed 265 people.
