Nine people were killed in a plane crash near Chamberlain, South Dakota, on Saturday afternoon.

An eastern Idaho family of 12 visited the state for a weekend hunting trip, but the Pilatus PC-12 crashed around 12:30 p.m. shortly after taking off from Chamberlain, according to Peter Knudson with the National Transportation Safety Board. The ages of the passengers ranged from 7 to 81.

Among the victims were Jim Hansen, Sr. and his sons, Kirk and Jim Hansen, Jr., and six other family members.

The crash also killed Kirk Hansen’s children, Stockton and Logan; his sons-in-law, Kyle Taylor and Tyson Dennert; and Jim Hansen’s son, Jake, and grandson, Houston, said Travis Garza, president of the wellness company Kyäni, in a Facebook post Sunday.

In addition, three people were injured in the crash, but are in stable condition at a hospital.
