5 bodies found in colo. plane crash wreckage

Divers have found the bodies of 5 people in a small plane that plunged into a Ridgway Reservoir just before 2 p.m. Saturday about 25 miles south of Montrose, Colorado, but their remains will not be recovered until specialized salvage crews arrive.

Authorities say the wreckage will have to be brought to shore before the bodies can be removed. They say the plane is upside down in about 3 feet of silt and about 60 or 70 feet underwater.

A salvage team is expected to begin raising the wreckage on Wednesday.

Authorities haven’t released the identities of the victims.

The Federal Aviation Administration says the plane left Gadsden, Ala., and was on its way to Montrose, Colo., when it crashed Saturday.

The cause of the crash isn’t yet known.
