3 Victims of Upstate NY Plane Crash Officially Identified

Authorities say they've officially identified the three people who died when their single-engine aircraft crashed and burned soon after taking off from a rural airport in upstate New York last weekend.

Matthew Coltrain, a coroner in Schoharie County, identified the victims Thursday as 50-year-old Andrew "Mike" Mydlarz and his wife, Susanne Hilgefort, both of Stamford, Connecticut, and 48-year-old Lisa Marie Quinn of New York City.

A fourth person survived last Saturday's crash in the town of Esperance, about 30 miles west of Albany. That person was taken to the burn unit at Westchester Medical Center. The person's name and condition information haven't been released.

The 48-year-old Hilgefort was a longtime Manhattan-based broadcasting employee of Major League Baseball. MLB officials on Tuesday confirmed the couple's death.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
