NEW SMYRNA BEACH - Two bodies have been recovered from a single-engine plane that crashed off Florida's Atlantic Coast.

Volusia County Sheriff's spokeswoman Priscilla Ress says divers found the bodies inside the plane's cabin about 10:20 a.m. Friday.

The plane was flying from Sarasota to Daytona Beach when it crashed Wednesday, coming to rest in 20 feet of water about 200 yards off the coast.

The Volusia County Medical Examiner's Office will perform autopsies.

The Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board are investigating.

NTSB investigator Butch Wilson says a flight instructor and student from Phoenix East Aviation were aboard the plane.
