Prince George, British Columbia: Fourth Person Extracted From Plane Wreckage

RCMP are advising that the fourth and remaining person has been extricated from the wreckage of a small plane crash west of Williams Lake.

'E' Division Media Relations Officer, Constable Annie Linteau, says the individual has been transported to hospital with undetermined injuries.

The three other passengers on-board the private plane remain in hospital with minor injuries.

The aircraft left the Springhouse airstrip near Williams Lake shortly before 8:30am this morning to conduct animal surveys in the Big Creek Park area. A search began after the aircraft's beacon was reported to be relaying an intermittent signal, indicating a hard landing or crash. Williams Lake Fire Centre and National Defence dispatched resources to the area. The plane was located at approximately 1:40pm, approximately 45-kilometres south of Hanceville.

The Transportation Safety Board is investigating. No further details are available at this time.
