Officials will resume their search Sunday for victims of a midair collision between a plane and a tourist helicopter over the Hudson River in New York.

Nine people were believed killed in the crash, said New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

Late Saturday night, investigators located the body of a fourth victim in the wreckage of the sightseeing helicopter. Rescue workers have not yet recovered the body, a source close to the investigation said.

So far, only three bodies have been pulled out.
