Two killed in Manhattan aircraft crash
NEW YORK (Reuters) – At least two people were killed when a small aircraft crashed into a 52-story building on Manhattan’s Upper East Side on Wednesday in what appeared to be an accident, officials said.
The four-seat plane was owned by Yankees baseball pitcher Cory Lidle, sources at the New York police department told Reuters. The FAA confirmed the plane was owned by Lidle, 34. CNN said the pilot of the plane was Lidle and he was believed to have been killed.
U.S. and New York officials said they had no reason to believe the crash, which occurred in overcast weather, was related to terrorism.
