A small plane crashed in Alaska late Friday killing four people including the pilot, police said Saturday, though six passengers survived and their lives were reportedly not in danger.
Alaska's state troopers named the victims and surviving passengers on their website and said the Cessna 208 had been flying between Bethel in southwest Alaska and St. Mary's when it crashed at around 7.00 pm (0400 GMT Saturday).
Fred Lamont, a police officer who responded to the crash, told the Anchorage Daily News that all the survivors had suffered broken bones and other injuries, but he expected that "they're all going to be ok."
