The three passengers who died in a light plane crash at a remote Northwest Territories lake last Thursday have been identified.
The N.W.T. coroner service said dead are 33-year-old Geoffrey Dean of Castor, Alta., and Stewart and Jean Edelman of Saskatoon, who were both 72.
The N.W.T. Health Department said the pilot and another passenger were not hurt in the crash.
The safety board, RCMP and the coroner service continue to investigate.
Little Doctor Lake, about 100 kilometres west of Fort Simpson, is accessible only by float plane in the summer and draws visitors from around the world looking for a wilderness experience.
Simpson Air’s website says it is a charter air service that offers adventure trips into the Mackenzie Mountains and the Nahanni National Park Reserve.
It also provides mail, cargo and grocery delivery, as well as medical, government and personal transportation to communities in the region.
