You might have heard that a small airplane crashed into a 50-story residential building on Manhattan's East Side, and killed at least two people. In an update to the story, CNN is reporting that the plane is registered to Cory Lidle:

First responders to the New York plane crash say an emergency call was made from the plane indicating a possible fuel problem.

New York Yankees Manager Joe Torre told CNN that the plane that was a Cirrus SR-20 registered to team pitcher Cory Lidle.

The plane hit the Belaire Condominiums at 524 E. 72nd Street near the East River. More than 150 firefighters are on scene of a four-alarm fire in the building.

Update: ESPN is reporting that Cory Lidle was the pilot of the plane and was killed in the crash. Cory is survived by his wife Melanie and his son Christopher, who just turned 6 less than a month ago. Wow. There are reports of at least 3 others dead as a result of the crash. Just wow - this is so sad. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of Cory Lidle and all those who are affected.

Update (by Patrick): According to Jeremy Schapp on ESPN, 2 people are dead and not 4. He said that both of them were on the plane. They aren't saying who the other person was with Mr. Lidle in the plan.

Another Update: This story just becomes sadder and sadder. Cory's dad first found out there was a plane crash while watching a news break at a golf course snack bar. He didn't realize it could be Cory's plane since he thought his son was already on his way home. It was only when he went home and saw another news break that he learned that Cory was dead. And if that doesn't break your heart, well, this might - it really got to me - I cannot imagine having that conversation. How do you tell someone that their husband and the father to their child is gone?

Compton said Lidle's wife, Melanie, and their 6-year-old son Christopher had left New York for Los Angeles before the accident, and likely had no way of learning of the news. According to Compton, a priest planned to meet the flight at Los Angeles International Airport and break the news to Melanie Lidle that her life is forever changed.

"She doesn't know," Compton said. "She's on a plane heading home. She has no clue."
