The Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office confirmed two people died in a plane collision over Lake Coeur d’Alene on Sunday afternoon, and as many as eight people may have been onboard the two aircraft.

The National Transportation Safety Board confirmed Sunday evening it was investigating the crash and identified the aircraft involved as a Cessna TU206G and a de Havilland DHC-2, both single-engine planes.

Witnesses reported seeing two planes colliding above the water, then crashing into the lake near Powderhorn Bay, according to a release from the Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office. The crash occurred around 2:20 p.m.

Multiple local agencies, including the sheriff’s marine teams, local fire departments and the United States Coast Guard, responded to the crash shortly after it occurred.

Lt. Ryan Higgins with the sheriff’s office confirmed two bodies had been recovered from the planes.
