Chopper wreckage may have been found

March 15, 2009


— Canadian investigators found what they think is the wreckage of a helicopter that crashed in the freezing Atlantic with 18 aboard, saying Saturday their main goal is to recover any of the 16 missing bodies that may still be inside.

Rescue efforts turned to recovery as officials said there was almost no chance of survival so long after Thursday’s crash.

The Sikorsky S-92 was carrying workers to oil platforms off Newfoundland when it reported mechanical problems and ditched into the sea about 30 miles from shore, officials said.
