KENORA, Ont. -- Three people are dead following a Friday afternoon plane crash south of Kenora.

OPP on Saturday said three occupants from Grand Rapids, Minn. were killed after their Cessna 182 went down on Chappie Lake, an inland lake on the Alneau Peninsula of Lake of the Woods.

The provincial police were called after the Joint Rescue Coordination Centre received a signal from an emergency locator transmitter.

The floatplane was found a short time afterwards. Two of the occupants had already passed away and the third was found seriously injured but lifesaving attempts were not successful.

The OPP have identified the three as 41-year-old Nikolas Rjala, 40-year-old Teresa Rajala and 36-year-old Lynn Bohanon.

The three were said to be staying at an area fishing lodge.

The Transportation Safety Board on Canada on Saturday said a team of investigators was being sent to the crash site to investigate.
