CHARLESTOWN, New Hampshire — The Federal Aviation Administration and National Transportation Safety Board are investigating a fatal plane crash in Charlestown.

The Charlestown Police Department said the crash occurred at about 5:35 p.m. on Saturday. The FAA confirmed that two men were aboard the plane at the time of the crash.

The Charlestown Police Department said one of the two men died at the scene. That man was later identified as Paul Harrison, 54, of Ryegate, Vermont.

The second man was brought to a hospital for what was described to be "serious injuries." Officials announced his identity as Ilya Rivkin, 47, of Windham, Maine.

The Charlestown Police Department, Charlestown Fire Department, New Hampshire State Police, Claremont Fire Department, and Golden Cross Ambulance Service all assisted at the scene.

The last deadly plane crash in New Hampshire happened in Winchester in 2017. John Everson, 65, of Connecticut, died when he crashed into the woods. Investigators said he put too much pressure on himself to finish the flight despite deteriorating weather conditions.
