Airmedic workers airlifted a badly burned pilot of a Cessna 206 plane from a remote north Quebec crash site Sunday night.
Two men are dead and a third is in serious but stable condition after a small plane crashed in northern Quebec late Sunday afternoon.
The Sûreté du Québec say someone from the Cessna 206 contacted the province's private air rescue service Airmedic at 3:30 p.m. Sunday to report the crash in the Côte-Nord region .
Aziz Fikri, vice-president of communications for Airmedic, told Radio-Canada a medical team was able to reach the injured pilot, a Gatineau, Que., businessman who was piloting the plane.
Philippe St-Pierre, the owner of several car dealerships in Gatineau, was transferred to a hospital in Quebec City with severe burns to much of his body.
The two victims of the crash were a 55-year-old Gatineau man and a 38-year-old man from Saint-Maurice, Que. Police have not revealed their identities.
Martin Leclair, a manager with Mercedes-Benz in Gatineau and colleague of St-Pierre, said he flew with St-Pierre on a number of occasions and described him as an experienced and meticulous pilot.
Jean Tremblay, a spokesman with the Sûreté du Québec, said investigators believe the crash occurred during takeoff.
