On the afternoon of Tuesday, December 10,
a small plane crashed on Gabriola Island
on Vancouver’s east coast,
killing many people.
At present, both the BC forensic department
and the Gabriola Island RCMP have confirmed this bad news.
In an interview with the media, the BC Emergency Services Center stated that
they received a report call at about 6 pm,
and then sent two ambulances to the scene of the crime scene,
and another five ambulances arrived at the scene by ferry.
At the same time, the RCMP quickly rushed to the scene
and sealed off the crash site until
the Transportation Safety Board arrived at the scene to investigate.
It is reported that Gabriola Island is located about 6 kilometers northeast of Nanaimo
and about 54 kilometers southwest of Vancouver.
There are about 4,000 residents on the island.
Relevant departments have not disclosed
the type of the crashed aircraft and the number of casualties.
But then, it was reported that the model of the crashed aircraft
was “Piper PA-60’s Star of Aviation”.
This type of aircraft can carry up to 6 people.
Ken is a resident living in the local area.
He witnessed the entire crash site.
“The pilot fought until the end
and the last moment of the crash!”
He said that he was the first to learn about the plane crash
and was the first to arrive at the scene to see the wreckage of the plane,
but he said that he really did not want to recall this incident.
Another witness, Randi, also said that
飞机在半空盘旋 翻滚 形容那是此生
he saw the plane circling and rolling in mid-air, describing it as
“the most terrifying collision sound heard” in this life.
The moment the plane crashed was like
“the big bang, and then the entire sky was illuminated.”
