OURAY COUNTY, Co. (WIAT) — Search and recovery operations in Colorado successfully located the five victims onboard a plane that crashed in a reservoir Saturday.
Ouray County attorney and spokesperson Marti Whitmore says images taken by a remote camera were confirmed by a dive team involved with the search operation.
Whitmore says the plane suffered extensive damage during the crash. As such, the bodies of the five victims cannot be safely removed until the plane is brought to shore.
A salvage crew will assist in the plane recovery Wednesday.
