    Body of NBC Exec Ebersol's Son Believed to Be Recovered
    Coroner Says Body Matching Description Found Underneath Wreckage

    MONTROSE, Colo. (Nov. 29) -- Moments after surviving a horrific plane crash, Charles Ebersol frantically begged bystanders for help in rescuing his kid brother from the wreckage: "Can you please help get him out?" the 21-year-old was quoted as saying.

    Nearby, his father, NBC Sports chairman Dick Ebersol, sat on the snowy ground amid the billowing smoke and chunks of wreckage, numbly rocking back and forth, according to a witness.

    "You could tell he was in shock. Both of them had been ripped out of their shoes," said Doug Percival, a driver at a towing service who was one of the first to arrive.

    The account came a day after a jet carrying the Ebersols crashed during a snowstorm while taking off from the airport outside this small town 185 miles southwest of Denver. Authorities said Monday they had removed a body from the wreckage matching that of 14-year-old Edward "Teddy" Ebersol, a freshman at a Connecticut boarding school.

    Two crewmen also died and another was injured along with the two Ebersols. NBC said in a statement Monday that Dick and Charlie Ebersol are in stable condition and expected to make a full recovery.

    Authorities had no immediate word on the cause of the crash.

    Sad news about the accident. My prayers go out to the family and friends. On the news this morning they mentioned that this was the same plane that was due to pickup President Bush 41 in the near future. Imus mentioned that this brought up the safety of corporate jets. Even though he has one himself.
