Bronx relatives remember those lost in Flight 587

Events are planned throughout the city on Wednesday to mark the second anniversary of the crash of American Airlines Flight 587. The flight was bound for the Dominican Republic when it crashed.

Many Bronx relatives of those lost in the crash headed by bus to Belle Harbor, Queens, site of the accident, for a memorial. Mayor Bloomberg led hundreds of mourners in the rain at Wednesday morning's memorial.

With Governor Pataki promising to build a permanent memorial, this might be the last year services are held at the crash site.
