The Coast Guard says two more bodies have been recovered after two floatplanes collided in Alaska, bringing the death toll to six.

Coast Guard Lt. Brian Dykens said his agency and the Ketchikan Volunteer Rescue Squad found the bodies near the crash site of the smaller plane involved in the collision, a single-engine de Havilland DHC-2 Beaver.

Dykens said a Coast Guard helicopter located the bodies and sent in the Ketchikan volunteers.

The floatplanes carrying cruise ship tourists collided Monday near the southeast Alaska town of Ketchikan and 10 people were rescued.
