Two killed, six more presumed dead after planes collide over Idaho lake

At least two people were killed — and six others presumed dead — when two planes collided over an Idaho lake on Sunday, according to reports.

The aircraft, believed to be carrying a total of eight passengers, struck each other at about 2:20 p.m. over Lake Coeur d’Alene, KXLY-TV reported, citing the Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office.

Two bodies were pulled from the water and other passengers have not yet been found, authorities said.

The two planes were located by sonar about 127 feet beneath the lake’s surface.

A witness to Sunday’s wreck, Patrick Pearce, told The Spokesman-Review that he saw the planes heading toward each other above the lake before they crashed and fell into the water.

Another witness, John Cowles, told the newspaper he saw what he thought was the “engine explosion” of a plane flying about 200 feet above water.

The plane’s wing then fell off before the aircraft plunged into the water, Cowles said.
