Nine more bodies were recovered during the weekend from the March 12 crash of a Cougar Helicopters S-92. The crash killed 17 people and the rest are believed to still be in the fuselage at the bottom of the Atlantic. The helicopter was carrying workers to an oil platform when it reported mechanical problems about 30 miles from shore. On Saturday, search crews found the fuselage and began extracting the bodies. The excavation of the aircraft will be done by crane and will probably take all week to complete.  Flights to and from the oil platforms have been suspended since Thursday. Crews are being transported instead by vessel. For related news
