Ebersol's Son Found

A body believed to be that of 14 year old Teddy Ebersol, son of NBC Sports Chairman, Dick Ebersol, has been found.

The body matching Teddy's description was recovered underneath some heavy wreckage yesterday afternoon.

Teddy was flying with his father and older brother when their twin-engine jet crashed while taking off from the Montrose, Colorado airport.

In their hometown of Litchfield, Connecticut, many know Dick Ebersol and his family and call them friends and neighbors. The news of the crash has hit the community hard. Leo Paul says "well they're neighbors. I think that's why our prayers are with the Ebersols. Not because the Ebersols are the Ebersols, it's because they're neighbors and they live in the town of Litchfield and they're respected members of this town."

The cause of the crash is still not clear. Investigators are looking into whether the plane was de-iced prior to taking off.

Dick Ebersol and his 21 year old son, Charlie remain hospitalized in critical condition. Both are expected to recover.

Two crew members were also killed in the crash.
