SCOTIA, N.Y. – Police say divers have recovered the third person killed when a small plane crashed into a river in eastern New York.
The plane crashed Sunday afternoon into the Mohawk River shortly after takeoff from a Schenectady County airport.
State police say the body of the plane's owner, 41-year-old Mathai Kolath George, was recovered Monday. The bodies of his son, 11-year-old George Kolath, and 52-year-old Krishnan Raghavan were recovered Sunday.
The plane sank in 30 feet of water and was found by people in a boat nearby.
Authorities on Monday recovered the small plane and loaded it on a barge.
The cause is under investigation.
