ESPN reports that New York Yankees pitcher Cory Lidle died in a crash that saw a single-engine plane collide into a 50-storey condominium tower in Manhattan.
A law enforcement official told The Associated Press that a member of the New York Yankees organization was aboard the plane that crashed into the highrise. FAA records show the plane was registered to Lidle.
FBI officials also say he was the only person aboard the plane.
The city medical examiner's office confirms at least three others have been killed.
