The wreckage of a light plane that crashed into Raglan Harbour yesterday has been removed from the sea.
A 26-year-old woman injured when the Piper Cherokee crashed is still in Waikato hospital in a serious condition.
Her husband and her brother, who was piloting the plane, escaped with minor to moderate injuries and were discharged from hospital overnight.
President of the Raglan Coastguard Wally Hawken said a salvage company finished removing the wreck from the harbour late last night and it was now in a secure compound waiting for investigators to assess it.
The police are investigating the cause of the crash. The Transport Accident Investigation Commission said it has been notified but has not opened an investigation yet.
