Cape Breton Post - - News | Canada -

MON­TREAL — Po­lice say two peo­ple may have per­ished af­ter a small plane crashed in north­ern Que­bec.

Que­bec provin­cial po­lice spokesman Jean Trem­blay says two planes car­ry­ing min­ing em­ploy­ees were head­ing to the Sch­ef­ferville air­port late Sun­day but only one of them ar­rived. The wreck­age was spot­ted by a search he­li­copter that was not able to land.

Rescuers used snow­mo­biles to reach the plane and did not see any signs of life from the oc­cu­pants.

Po­lice say the cir­cum­stances sur­round­ing the crash are un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion. Sch­ef­ferville is more than 500 kilo­me­tres north of Sept-Iles, Que., near the Labrador bor­der.
