Baku, September 26, AZERTAC
Two people are dead and another is injured after a small plane crashed in Riviere-Mouchalagane in the Cote-Nord region of Quebec late Sunday afternoon, according to CBC News.
The Surete du Quebec say a passenger contacted Airmedic at 3:30 p.m. on Sunday to report the crash.
Aziz Fikri, the vice-president of communications for Airmedic, told Radio-Canada that a medical team was able to reach the injured passenger by helicopter, but could not land due to the explosion from the crash.
Airmedic has not released the identities of the victims or the passenger, who was transported to hospital in the City of Sept-Iles with severe burn injuries.
Police say the site of the crash is not accessible by land, but a search and rescue operation is set to begin late Sunday night by police and the Canadian Armed Forces.
