Nine dead in Brule County, SD plane crash

A plane crash in the USA state of South Dakota killed nine people, including two children, and injured three others on Saturday while a winter storm warning was in place, officials said.

Knudson says nine people were killed in the crash and three were injured.

A weekend hunting trip has turned to heartbreaking tragedy Saturday afternoon (local time) after nine members of an eastern Idaho family were killed in an airplane crash.

The three survivors had been taken to the hospital in Sioux Falls, she told USA media.

Rossow also said that first responders and medical professionals worked to rescue the victims in "extreme weather conditions". The Chamberlain area was under a winter storm warning and the National Weather Service said visibility was a small distance from the airport. Their conditions have not been released and EastIdahoNews.com is not reporting their names or the names of the other fatalities at this time.

Knudson says the plane was bound for Idaho Falls, Idaho, and crashed within a mile after takeoff on Saturday.

Caruana Galizia, a campaigning journalist who investigated and exposed corruption, was blown up by a auto bomb in October 2017. Official sources said Muscat was expected to make a statement announcing his resignation later on Saturday or on Sunday.


FAA investigators are traveling to the site, and the National Transportation Safety Board has been notified.

12 people were on board the plane and three were transported to Sioux Falls for medical treatment.

Knudson told the Associated Press weather will be among several factors that the agency will investigate, but said it was too early to determine.

He says federal investigators will likely reach the crash site on Monday.

He added, however, that inclement weather is making it hard to travel to the site, possibly delaying their investigations. Kirk Hansen is a licensed pilot.
