MONTREAL – Two men have died after a small plane crashed Monday in an orchard east of Montreal.
Quebec provincial police identified the two victims as men aged 51 and 66-years-old, from St-Jean-sur-Richelieu and Mont-St-Gregoire, Que., southeast of Montreal.
Police say they received a call at about 11:40 a.m. regarding an ultralight plane that went down in Rougemont, Que.
Firefighters arrived first on the scene and used the jaws of life to extricate the victims, who were transported to hospital in critical condition.
It’s unclear for the moment where the plane took off or where it was headed.
Provincial police are investigating the incident and the Transportation Safety Board have deployed a team of investigators.
