A light-engine plane crashed in Alaska

Six people died.

A small plane of the Southeast Aviation Company crashed on Thursday in Alaska near the city of Ketchikan; all six people on board were killed. The US Coast Guard announced this.

According to her information, a distress signal from a single-engine de Havilland Beaver seaplane was received shortly before noon, after which a rescue team was sent to find it. “A team from the Coast Guard Air Base Sitka discovered the crash site at 14: 37 local time; two rescue divers reported the absence of survivors. Presumably, there were a pilot and five passengers onboard the aircraft,” the report says.

The cause of the incident has not yet been reported, but the Coast Guard noted that there was fog and light rain that day. According to the Associated Press, all five passengers traveled on a Holland America Line cruise ship shortly before the incident.
