MONTREAL (NEWS 1130) — One person has died and another is in the hospital after a small plane crash near Old Montreal on Saturday.
It happened at around 6:00 pm on Île Sainte-Hélène, at a spot that’s home to an amusement park, casino, and other popular attractions.
The Transportation Safety Board (TSB) is investigating the incident and sent a team to the scene, says Chris Krepski with the TSB.
They believe the duo were only two people on the plane at the time of the accident.
The plane, a Cessna 172 aircraft, was towing a banner when it went down, says the TSB.
