Published on : Monday, December 2, 2019

Nine were killed including the pilot in a plane crash that happened in the U.S. state of South Dakota. Apart from the pilot, two children also died in the plane crash, and it left three people injured. Worth mentioning here that a winter storm warning was already in place in the region.

 

 

The Pilatus PC-12, a single-engine turboprop plane, crashed soon after its take-off, around two kilometres from the Chamberlain airport, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has said.

 

 

The plane had only 12 people on board.

 

 

The three survivors were rushed to hospital in Sioux Falls.

 

 

The flight left the airport just before noon local time for the destination of Idaho Falls Regional Airport in the western state of Idaho.

 

 

The FAA has said that investigations have been launched and that investigators have been sent to the crash site and the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has been made the in-charge of the investigation.

 

 

The NTSB has tweeted that it is the investigating the crash of Pilatus PC-12 near Chamberlain, SD.

 

 

South Dakota is located in the Northern Plains, a region facing extreme conditions as a storm blows eastward across the United States.

 

 

 

A winter storm warning had been issued for Brule County, the National Weather Service has said. That snow can significantly reduce the visibility, the NSW has asserted.

 

 

The authorities have hailed the men and women of law enforcement apart from the first responders and medical professionals for their heroic actions to help the victims in extreme weather conditions.
