Float plane goes down

A Cessna 180 float plane with two occupants went down yesterday while en route to a northern camp near Woodland Caribou Provincial Park.
The plane was reported overdue by a local airways service to the Joint Rescue Co-ordination Centre at CFB Trenton at 9:45 p.m.
A search and rescue unit immediately was dispatched but was unable to proceed due to poor weather conditions.
When conditions improved, the search and rescue operation resumed, and the downed plan was located near Miller Lake around 5 a.m. this morning.
One occupant of the plane was transported to the Margaret Cochenour Memorial Hospital in Red Lake with serious injuries.
A joint investigation effort has been initiated by the Transport Safety Board from Winnipeg and the Red Lake OPP.
This investigation is ongoing and further information will be released when facts have been confirmed.
