A plane carrying 11 people crashed today on a mountainside in Alaska, officials and rescuers said, but there were no deaths.
The De Havilland DHC-3T Turbo Otter floatplane was carrying 10 passengers and a pilot, according to CBS-affiliated TV station KTVA, citing rescuers.
The channel said 10 people were injured as it hit the side of Mount Jumbo at a height of around 2,000 feet (600 metres), and were all in a stable condition.
Authorities say the pilot radioed shortly before 9:00 am and the Coast Guard dispatched two helicopter crews to the area, around 65 km southwest of Ketchikan.
All 11 people rescued were hoisted from the crash site and taken to a staging area to be moved to the city for medical treatment.
