"The Beaver, the smaller plane, appears to have broken apart in midair, according to Jerry Kiffer, duty incident commander of the Ketchikan Volunteer Rescue Squad. He said the plane's tail and section of the fuselage were 900 feet (275 meters) from the aircraft's floats, which landed near shore."

"PeaceHealth Ketchikan Medical Center’s Dr. Peter Rice said that’s when local medical responders were notified to prepare for incoming victims. Those victims started arriving about an hour later.

“In total, we received 10 patients,” he said. “Three were ultimately determined to be in serious condition, and seven in fair condition.”

That evening, four of the patients were stabilized and air-lifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, a Level-1 trauma center."
