Two reported dead following plane crash in Algonquin Park
Two people are reported dead after a plane crash in Algonquin Park. Sources say both male victims were in their 20s and that the pilot of the Cessna 150 declared an airborne emergency last night. Regional air traffic controllers are said to have lost contact with the aircraft south of the park in the Haliburton area. CBC reports the plane was found after a Hercules aircraft was sent to the area with a Griffin helicopter from the base in Trenton. According to the CBC, the plane had left the Buttonville Airport northeast of Toronto and was scheduled to travel to Saint-Hubert, Quebec, on Montreal’s south shore.
