According to the New York TV newscast, divers are searching for 59-year-old Harry Hernandez of Staten Island.
He was one of three crew members aboard the tugboat when it struck a barge yesterday morning and sank.
62-year-old Paul Amon of New Jersey was pulled out of the water shortly after the crash and pronounced dead — then, divers found the body of a 29-year-old Long Island man, Timothy Conklin, this morning.
Officials say it could be some time before Hernandez, presumed dead, is found.
“We’re not sure if the body is still in the boat,” said Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino. “The divers are going to resume and continue the process of trying to get in. The boat itself is 90 feet long and suffered some significant damage.
“But right now it’s still very difficult to get inside. They may have to pull it up. So at this point the second, the third body I should say, has not been recovered.”
Officials also say the tugboat was carrying five-thousand gallons of fuel, which spilled into the river.
Governor Cuomo says he does not expect the leak to cause significant long-term damage, and clean-up efforts are underway.
