Second body found after boat crash

Officials have recovered the body of a bride-to-be and now what they believe to be the body of the best man after a Hudson River wedding party boating accident.
NEW YORK (WSYR-TV/CNN) -- According to CNN reports, officials have recovered the body of a bride-to-be after a boat crashed into a barge on the Hudson River.

The body of Lindsey Stewart of Piermont, New York, was recovered Saturday about an eighth of a mile from the river's edge, Rockland County Sheriff's Chief William Barbera told CNN.

On Sunday, authorities found what they believe to be the body of the best man, Mark Lennon.

Police say both of them went overboard when the 21-foot Stingray power boat hit a barge about 200 feet south of the Tappan Zee Bridge, located about 25 miles north of Manhattan.

Four others were injured in the accident, including the groom who suffered a fractured eye socket.

The operator of a boat has been arrested. 35-year-old Jojo John of Nyack, New York, is charged with one count of first-degree vehicular manslaughter and three counts of second-degree vehicular assault.

More charges are possible, according to investigators.
