Search for bodies of Russian plane crash - video

Emergency services workers searched for bodies of 62 plane crash victims in the airport of Rostov-on-Don in southern Russia.

Emergency workers in Russia continue the grim task of searching for bodies on Sunday.

As snow pours down, they scour the airfield in Rostov-on-Don where a passenger jet flying from Dubai crashed early Saturday, killing 62 people.

Alexander Chistyakov says he lost his brother, sister-in-law and nephew.

“Yes, my younger brother’s (family died). He was 15 years younger than me. He was a successful surgeon, he worked in a regional hospital. This is such a loss.”

Investigators have recovered the plane’s flight recorders and are trying to figure out what caused the crash.
