09 AUG 2018: Four Polish tourists are confirmed dead in a sightseeing plane crash near Denali. The wreckage containing four bodies was discovered by National Park rangers, who believe that the pilot also died in the crash though his body has yet to be found.

The crash site is in 'extremely technical terrain' on a hanging glacier which has been made more difficult by bad weather and poor visability, said Katherine Belcher, spokesperson for Denali National Park.

"There were no footprints or disturbances leading away from the site and there were no other signs to indicate any of the passengers made it out of the plane".
