Specialized divers begin plane crash recovery

DULUTH, Minn. (AP) - Two commercial divers with expertise in deep diving have been hired to recover the body of a pilot whose small plane crashed into Lake Superior.

St. Louis County Rescue Squad Capt. Tom Crossmon said Monday the commercial divers along with those from the Superior-Douglas County, Wisconsin dive team will also work to recover the single-engine plane which crashed shortly after taking off from the Duluth International Airport Saturday.

St. Louis County first responders used sonar equipment to locate the plane's wreckage about 140 feet below the water's surface over the weekend. Searchers in boats found a log book in debris about a mile offshore.
