Eight people are believed to have died after two planes collided over Lake Curd d'Alene in Idaho and then sank, Lieutenant Ryan Higgins from the Kutenai County Sheriff’s office said.
According to Higgins, on Sunday, July 5, at about 14:20 the police received a call that two planes collided over the lake. On aircraft, even before they sank, two bodies were found.
Higgins said the remaining six people have not yet been found, but are presumed dead. Among them are adults and children, but the lieutenant did not disclose details.
Investigators have not yet determined the cause of the collision or how many casualties were on each plane.
According to Higgins, the aircraft were discovered by a group of sonars at a depth of 127 feet (38,7 meters) and they will not be raised until Monday or Tuesday (July 6 or 7).
