The Alaska Department of Public Safety says the bodies of three people killed in a plane accident in Alaska's Kenai Peninsula have been recovered from the crash site.
Spokeswoman Megan Peters says the bodies were brought back June 30 from a mountain on the north side of Tern Lake near Moose Pass. They were being taken to the State Medical Examiner's Office in Anchorage for autopsies.
Peters says the victims have been tentatively identified as pilot Michael Scott Christy, 73, his wife, Jean Tam, 69, both of Anchorage, Alaska, and passenger Suzanne Glass, 29, of Sterling.
The small plane crashed into a mountain on the north side of Tern Lake near Moose Pass on June 28, Alaska State Troopers spokesman Tim DeSpain told the Anchorage Daily News.
The survivor, 28-year-old Andrea Joy Cooper of Sterling, was on vacation in Alaska with friends when the plane crashed. Cooper suffered multiple broken bones and a partially collapsed lung, but was responsive in the hospital June 29, her family told the Anchorage Daily News.
