Two people were found alive at the site of a small plane crash Monday in the Central Idaho mountains.
The crash was reported at about 2 p.m. Pacific, according to an Idaho County Dispatch press release. The crash was in the Smith Knob area outside of Warren, which is northeast of McCall.
Both occupants of the plane were “located and transported” via Life Flight helicopter and fixed-wing craft, according to the release. The occupants survived the crash, Idaho County Dispatch told the Idaho Statesman via email.
Payette National Forest also sent air support to assist with a fire started by the crash, according to the release.
“The Idaho County Sheriff’s Office would like to thank Life Flight Network, Payette National Forest, Idaho Transportation Department and the community members from Warren for their assistance in locating and extracting the occupants,” the release said.
