All 25 passengers onboard the West Wind Aviation flight that crashed shortly after taking off from the Fond-du-Lac, Sask., airport Wednesday night "have been accounted for and removed from the scene of the crash," the RCMP said late Wednesday.
There were no fatalities, RCMP added in a 10:30 p.m. CST news release.
"There was no explosion or fire. A number of people have suffered injuries, some serious enough to require air ambulance services which are currently en route," the release said.
