At least seven people have died this Thursday in a plane crash registered in the eastern Canadian province of Ontario, in the eastern part of the country.

According to information from the CBC television network, five of the deceased belonged to the same family. The American pilot Otabek Oblokulov, his wife and their three children of three, eleven and fifteen have died with a Toronto couple.

The aircraft, a Piper PA-32, was heading to Quebec City from the Buttonville Municipal Airport in Markham, when the accident occurred, which took place northwest of the city around 5.00 p.m. (local time) .

The Transportation Safety Board (TSB) has indicated that the plane had changed course to Kingston shortly before crashing.

“There were signs of bad weather conditions at the time the accident took place,” said the TSB, which has confirmed that communications were recorded between the pilot and the Kingston Flight Service. “The investigation will try to obtain more details about these communications,” he added.
