The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has said that a plane crash in the US state of South Dakota has killed nine persons, including two children, and injured three others on Saturday while a winter storm warning was in place.
The Pilatus PC-12, a single-engine turboprop plane, was said to have crashed shortly after take-off approximately a mile from the Chamberlain airport.
Brule County state’s attorney, Theresa Maule Rossow said that a total of 12 people had been on board.
The three survivors had also been taken to the hospital in Sioux Falls, she said.
The flight left the airport just before noon local time, with a destination of Idaho Falls Regional Airport in the western state of Idaho.
According to FAA, it said that the investigators were en route to the crash site and that the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) would be in charge of the investigation.
The NTSB tweeted that it was “investigating today’s crash of Pilatus PC-12 near Chamberlain, SD.”
South Dakota is located in the Northern Plains, a region facing blizzard conditions as a storm blows eastward across the United States.
State Attorney said: “A winter storm warning remains in effect in Brule County until midday Sunday, the National Weather Service said, potentially including blowing snow that “could significantly reduce visibility.”
“The men and women of law enforcement, first responders and medical professionals should be commended in their heroic actions to rescue the victims in extreme weather conditions.”
