Officials ID body of NY Angel Flight crash victimJune 13, 2013 @ 12:56 pm
EPHRATAH, N.Y. (AP) - Officials have confirmed the body of a cancer patient who was in a small plane crash last month in upstate New York has been found.
Authorities told local media outlets an autopsy Thursday determined remains found Wednesday near an ice cream stand a mile from the main wreck site are those of 64-year-old Frank Amerosa.
Amerosa was on the Angel Flight with his 58-year-old wife Evelyn. They were returning to Rome, N.Y., after treatment in the Boston area when the plane crashed west of Albany in rural Ephratah on May 24.
The bodies of Evelyn Amerosa and 70-year-old volunteer pilot John Campbell of Stamford, Conn., were found the next day.
A preliminary federal aviation safety report says the plane broke up in flight. The cause remains under investigation.
