Re; Float Plane Crash – Tyaughton Lake BC, 1st August 2018
As per local news, a float plane incident was reported on Tyaughton Lake just before 1pm on 1st August 2018.
We are deeply saddened by this tragedy. Our hearts go out to the victims and their families, loved ones and friends, and we send our sympathy and condolences.
At Tyax Adventures we know as the primary float plane operator in the area that people are concerned for us. We do want to share the fact that the plane was not Tyax Adventures plane, and not connected to our operation. All the guests and staff of Tyax Adventures are safe and well.
We really thank everyone who has contacted us with their concern and support. We feel for this small community and want to do what we can to share our support and sympathy. This is a difficult time.
Thank you to the first responders, emergency services and all volunteers. Our thoughts are with you and those who witnessed this tragic event, along with the victims and their families.
We encourage victims to seek support and it has been confirmed with the RCMP that anyone requiring assistance or support following their involvement in yesterday’s plane crash may contact Lillooet Victims Services at 250-256-4146.
With over 20years experience flying in the South Chilcotin our operations continue at this time.
