KENORA, Ontario — Ontario Provincial police say Americans have died in a plane crash in northwestern Ontario.

Police said search and rescue squads located a downed Cessna 182 just after 4 p.m. Friday on Chappie Lake, south of Kenora, Ontario.

Police say two people were found dead and the third victim died later of her injuries.

Police arrived at the scene after receiving an emergency locator signal from Chappie Lake.

Canadian authorities identified the victims as 41-year-old Nikolas Rajala, 40-year-old Teresa Rajala, and 36-year-old Lynn Bohanon, all of Grand Rapids, Minnesota.

Police say the three were staying at a fishing lodge in the area, and were on a fishing trip when the crash occurred.

Ontario Provincial Police and the Canadian Transportation Safety Board are investigating the cause of the crash.
