Police say a fifth body has been recovered from the wreckage of a small plane that broke apart and crashed while trying to land at an airport in central New Jersey.
Capt. Tim Clayton of the Wall Township police says three men, a teenager and a younger child were killed in the crash Monday afternoon at Monmouth Executive Airport. At least three of the victims were related.
Two of the victims were from New Jersey, three were from elsewhere. Their names were not immediately released.
The airport is located near the Jersey shore about 35 miles east of Trenton. Monmouth County is a largely affluent area that is home to many business executives, upscale seashore communities and entertainers, including Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi.
The Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating.
