Rescuers pull 2 bodies from lagoon in Nigerian chopper crash

Rescuers have pulled two more bodies from the water, bringing to six the number of deaths when a helicopter plunged into a lagoon in a ball of fire in Nigeria's commercial capital, Lagos.

Marine police and fishermen calling for body bags raced to a dock on Thursday. A rescue official confirmed they are carrying two bodies but spoke on condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to give information to journalists.

Four bodies were recovered on Wednesday after the crash of a U.S.-made Sikorsky S-76C+ belonging to the Houston, Texas-based Bristow Group.

Six people are recovering from injuries in the hospital, according to spokesman Ibrahim Farinloye of the National Emergency Management Agency.

The agency's coordinator Onimode Bandele says all the victims appear to be Nigerian.
