NTSB officials expected at crash site
Investigators from the National Transportation Safety Board were expected to arrive Saturday at the site of a plane crash in southeast Alaska that killed the pilot and injured four on board.
Rescuers planned to try again to recover the body of pilot Fariah Peterson of Birmingham, Ala., said Alaska State Troopers spokeswoman Beth Ipsen.
The Cessna 207, operated by Wings of Alaska, departed from Juneau and was headed to the community of Hoonah when it went down Friday afternoon.
Two passengers were airlifted to a Seattle trauma center. Sandra Herrera of Juneau was in serious condition and Ernestine Hanlon-Abel of Hoonah was in critical condition, officials said.
Two others, Humberto Hernandez of Juneau and Jose Vasquez of Puerto Rico, were admitted to the Juneau hospital and listed in stable condition.
