A body has been recovered from the Hudson River, where a tugboat sank Saturday morning after colliding with a barge near the Tappan Zee Bridge.

Emergency crews in the Berkshires will continue work today to recover an unidentified man from the Housatonic River near a Pittsfield dam.

The recovery efforts were postponed after dark Tuesday evening after the body of a man was located lodged in the spillway at the Tel-Electric dam by Mill Street in Pittsfield. The search for the man began around noontime Tuesday after he was reportedly pulled underwater by the current while swimming near the dam.
