A body pulled from the Hudson River today is believed to be that of 30-year-old Lindsey Stewart, a bride-to-be who went missing yesterday when a boat she and other wedding party members were on crashed last night, CNN reports. The best man, Mark Lennon, is still missing. Four others were injured in the crash, including groom-to-be Brian Bond, 35, who was knocked unconscious and suffered a fractured eye socket, reports WABC-TV.

The wedding party riding on a 21-foot Stingray power boat, when it crashed into a barge
near the Tappan Zee Bridge in Piermont, about 25 miles north of Manhattan, reports CNN. "The river at night is very dark, and even knowing the barges are there, they are difficult to locate until you are very close," says a county undersheriff. Stewart was not wearing a life jacket when she went overboard, reports the Journal News. Two of the four who survived were wearing one. (More Tappan Zee Bridge stories.)
