  • Emergency responders assist a passenger injured in a crash of a Taquan Air plane in mountainous terrain on Prince of Wales Island Tuesday

All 11 people aboard a plane that crashed Tuesday have been rescued in mountainous terrain on Prince of Wales Island in Alaska, officials said. Alaska State Troopers have identified the plane as a Taquan Air flight.

Johnson said the crash occurred around 8:35 a.m. Tuesday. "Thankfully, it was a good outcome". The people who need immediate medical attention will be taken by a different helicopter to Ketchikan Medical Center.

Update | All 11 people from the single-engine plane were rescued by the U.S. Coast Guard and flown to a staging area, before they were transported to Ketchikan for further medical treatment, NBC News first reported.

One MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter was already headed to the scene from Air Station Sitka, with another being dispatched. All occupants in the crash are expected to survive, Hengen said.

Tim DeSpain, a spokesman for the Alaska State Troopers, said the pilot reported there were injuries but no deaths among the 11 on board after the crash on Prince of Wales Island.

"We haven't heard of any casualties, no reports of that", said Clint Johnston, chief of Alaska's NTSB office.

Visibility was about one-quarter mile, but the pilot had made an SOS call, and rescuers were able to locate an emergency locator signal.

The company said it had suspended all scheduled flights Tuesday and was co-operating with authorities.

"The visibility is poor right now, so that's causing some difficulty in locating the aircraft right now", Hengen said.
