Crews prepare to lift crashed plane in N. Salem

Searchers are preparing to use specialized equipment to help raise more of the sunken remains of a small airplane that crashed in North Salem last week.



Police divers are still searching the Titicus Reservoir, where the plane went down, for clues.



A small crane and large airbags arrived Wednesday to lift some of the heavier pieces from the reservoir floor.



Human remains recovered from the water earlier in the week have been taken to Westchester Medical Center for identification. News 12 has previously reported that they are believed to be the remains of the pilot and his wife, Val and Taew Horsa.



Police have also recovered part of the plane's fuselage and a wing.
