LI man killed in Hudson River tugboat crash
A young man from Westbury is being remembered after losing his life on the Hudson River.
Timothy Conklin, 29, was one of three men who died after their tugboat crashed and sank near the Tappan Zee Bridge on Saturday.
The boat named 'The Specialist' was working with two other tugs pushing a construction crane down the Hudson.
Divers recovered Conklin's body at the bottom of the river yesterday. The body of the boat's captain, a New Jersey man, was found as well.
A third crew member from Staten Island has not yet been found and is presumed dead. Officials believe his body is in a section of the sunken tugboat that divers can't access.
