A North Vancouver pilot died and ten others were injured in a plane crash in Richmond, British Columbia, late Wednesday afternoon.
Two crew members and seven passengers were in the small plane when the Northern Thunderbird Air Beach King 100 crashed. Two people on the ground were also hurt.
Bill Hess, General Manager of Northern Thunderbird Air, said that the pilot was a 14,000-hour international pilot, highly experienced and respected. The pilot leaves behind a wife and young daughter.
"Two [people] remain in the ICU in critical condition," explains Clay Adams with Vancouver Coastal Health. "We have four others who are, thankfully, stable but still in serious condition at Vancouver General."
"Some have got burns, fractures, back injuries... those kind of things. Concussions... a myriad of things, really depending on the patients. Obviously those who are in critical condition are dealing with burns. They're the ones we're focusing on," he says.
NT Air says that safety is a major priority for all of its staff. It strives to have zero accidents and to eliminate dangerous situations.
The National Transportation Safety Board will continue its investigation into the cause of the crash.
The company issued the following statement in part:
Northern Thunderbird Air would like to confirm that an accident has occurred with one of its aircraft in the vicinity of the Vancouver International Airport. . . Our hearts go out to the passengers and crew; and their families during this difficult time.
