East Kootenay search and rescue personnel have been called to a plane crash initially reported north of Elkford.
Sparwood Search and Rescue (SAR), Elkford SAR and Elk Valley PEP Air members were tasked to respond to the aviation incident this afternoon, however, they were later stood down.
“As SAR members were preparing to deploy, new information indicated the crash location was further north in Alberta’s Kananaskis Country,” said Sparwood SAR in a Facebook post.
“Once this was confirmed, the incident was handed off to the much closer Alberta resources and the response from B.C. was stood down.”
More to come.
