One Dead, Seven Injured in Snow Lake Plane Crash

November 18, 2012 2:14 PM | News

One person is dead and seven others are injured following a plane crash near Snow Lake on Sunday.

The Cessna 208 Caravan plane went down shortly after 10 a.m. about nine kilometres east of Snow Lake Airport in a bush area.

RCMP say several passengers were on board at the time, and some are suffering from serious injuries.

Weather is hampering air support, as well as the remote location of the crash site. A Canadian Forces Search and Rescue Hercules was dispatched to assist, but is limited due to weather.

UPDATE: The deceased has been identified as the 40-year-old male pilot of the plane and a resident of Snow Lake. The seven injured were all adult males and their conditions are unknown. RCMP say the plane was headed to Winnipeg at the time.
