Authorities recover body of final victim in Lake Michigan medical plane crash

Authorities have recovered the body of the fourth and final victim of a small medical plane that crashed into Lake Michigan last month.

Mason County Undersheriff Tom Trenner says the body of co-pilot Earl Davidson was recovered Sunday.

Trenner said Monday that officials also have lifted the remains of the small plane from the lake for examination.

The plane was en route to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., with a cancer patient and four others on board, when mechanical problems caused it to crash July 23. The sole survivor, 66-year-old pilot Jerry Freed, was rescued that day.

The bodies of Alma school superintendent and cancer patient Don Pavlik and his wife, Irene, were found Friday and a third body identified as Dr. James Hall was recovered Saturday.
