Second Body Recovered From Texas Plane Crash

Authorities say a second body has been recovered after an Amazon Prime Air cargo jet nosedived into waters just off Houston yesterday. Today, Chambers County Sheriff Brian Hawthorne says authorities are still in active recovery mode. At least three people were on board Boeing 767 that was traveling from Miami to Houston. NTSB Chairman Robert Sumwalt said authorities are analyzing surveillance video as they try to find out how the plane nosedived into Trinity Bay, which is a part of the larger Galveston Bay, near the town of Anahuac. All contact was lost with the flight when it was about six-thousand feet in the air and roughly 30 miles from Houston's George Bush Intercontinental Airport. Sumwalt said the top priority is to obtain the plane recorders. He noted that the pilots didn't issue a distress call, even though the plane descended at a steep angle, nose- first into the shallow waters.
