HOBOKEN, N.J. - (AP) - New York City police say they've found a man's body in the wreckage of a plane in the Hudson River.

Police say divers can't dislodge the body from the wreckage, which is buried in about 60 feet of water in the river between New York and New Jersey.

The Army Corps of Engineers is being consulted about trying to pull the aircraft to the surface.

Nine people, including a Pennsylvania family and five Italian tourists, were killed in Saturday's collision of the plane and a sightseeing helicopter. Eight bodies have been recovered.

Police say the plane was found on its side with no wings visible.
