Officials in Scotland say the death toll from the helicopter crash in Glasgow has risen to nine. It was originally reported that eight people—five patrons and three people inside the helicopter—were killed after the helicopter crashed into the Clutha Vaults on Friday night.

As officials used a crane to remove what's left of the helicopter from the pub, they announced the discovery of another body, bumping the number of people killed inside of the club up to six. They fear that more bodies will be discovered now that the helicopter has been removed.

The New York Daily News adds that 12 people—three of whom are in intensive care—remain hospitalized.
