JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Crash investigators say they've recovered the cockpit voice recorder from a chartered jet that ran off a runway and into a river at a Florida military base.

The National Transportation Safety Board posted Tuesday on Twitter about finding the recorder for the Boeing 737 that skidded into the St. Johns River after landing at Naval Air Station Jacksonville. The flight data recorder was recovered Saturday, but the voice recorder had been underwater and inaccessible.

None of the 143 people onboard had serious injuries from the landing Friday night. A dog and two cats died in the cargo hold.

NTSB says a barge and a crane began moving the Miami Air International plane Tuesday morning. The aircraft will be transported to a secure location so investigators can continue their work.
