Eight cruise
ship passengers and a pilot were killed when a sightseeing plane crashed in
southeastern Alaska Thursday.

Emergency
crews were able to reach the aircraft that crashed against a granite rock face
and confirm the deceased, according to Megan Peters from Alaska’s Department of
Public Safety.
The victims
included eight passengers and the pilot.
The National
Transportation Safety Board said on Twitter it was sending a
“go-team” to the crash site to investigate.
The plane, a
single-engine DHC-3 Otter, went down near a town called Ketchikan.
The aircraft
is reported to have been part of an excursion launched from Holland America
Line, a cruise line operating in the area.
