Two men were killed in a small plane crash Tuesday after their aircraft landed in the river near Crescent City Tuesday, according to the Putnam County Sheriff's Office (PCSO).
Dive teams recovered the second body from inside the underwater plane wreckage overnight.
PCSO said the plane crashed in the river after 7:29 p.m. The plane is now upside down near Fort Gates Ferry.
PCSO said the plane is privately owned and is an 8-to-10 passenger plane. They said the plane took off from Mt. Royal Airport around 3 p.m. and had two passengers on board at the time of departure.
Both men were found and search and rescue operations have been suspended. The Florida Highway Patrol and the National Transportation Safety Administration will now investigate the cause of the crash.
