Two found dead in wreckage of plane crash
Two men have died in a small plane crash in Manitoba that took several hours for searchers to locate due to poor weather. RCMP say the singleengine Cessna took off on Thursday from St. Andrews, north of Winnipeg, and was reported late at its destination in Winkler. Police, along with a Canadian Armed Forces search-and-rescue team, eventually found the wreckage in a field near Brunkild, about 45 kilometres southwest of Winnipeg early Friday. “Unfortunately, there were two males on board — a 60-year-old and a 41-year-old — and both were deceased when we located the plane,” an RCMP spokeswoman said.
