Skydivers Plane Goes Down

My God, this is tragic! Seven bodies were discovered last night after the wreckage of a plane was discovered south of Mount Rainier, Washington. No sign of life has been detected. The plane was carrying nine skydivers and their pilot. The Associated Press stated on Tuesday that the three people whose bodies had not been found probably did not survive the crash.

The wreckage was in an area with steep terrain among heavy timber and brush, just 200 yards from where the last radar signal from the plane was detected, Yakima County Sheriff's Deputy Dan Cypher said. tThe front part of the plane was found Monday night, but the back section had not been found. Cypher described the crash site as "bad."

A single-engine Cessna 208 Caravan, the plane fell off radar at 8 p.m. (11 p.m. ET) Sunday, about a half-hour after taking off from Boise, Idaho, bound for Shelton, Washington, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.

The skydivers regularly participated in jumps with Skydive Snohomish in Snohomish, Washington.
