Edmonton mother and daughter among 18 Canadians killed in Ethiopian Airlines plane crash

Edmonton mother and daughter among 18 Canadians killed in Ethiopian Airlines plane crash An Edmonton woman and her daughter are among 18 Canadians confirmed dead in a plane crash Sunday in Ethiopia. Amina Ibrahim Odowa, 33, and her daughter Sofia Abdulkadir, 5, were killed when the Ethiopian Airlines jetliner crashed shortly after taking off from Addis Ababa. Odowa's two surviving daughters, ages three and seven, are in the care of their grandmother in Edmonton. None of the 157 passengers and crew members on board survived. The plane was destined for Nairobi. After takeoff, the Ethiopian Airlines pilot sent out a distress call and was cleared to return to the airport.

The Transportation Safety Board (TSB) is investigating after a small plane narrowly missed slamming into moving traffic on Tuesday afternoon near Buttonville Airport in Markham, Ont.

A horrifying video shared online by multiple people shows the white Cirrus SR20 crash across 16th Avenue, which runs just beyond the airport's runway, and narrowly miss a white SUV or truck as its wing scrapes the road.

CBC Toronto is trying to reach the driver who recorded the dashcam video.

NewsAlert: N.B. man ID'd as crash victim

NewsAlert: N.B. man ID'd as crash victim Forestry groups have identified a New Brunswick man as one of the 18 Canadians who died Sunday when an Ethiopian Airlines plane crashed shortly after takeoff, killing all 157 aboard. The Kenya Forest Service and the Family Forest Nepal Facebook pages both wrote posts offering condolences to the family of Peter DeMarsh of International Family Forestry Alliance. The International Family Forestry Alliance did not immediately return a request for comment early Monday. The Kenya Forest Service post said DeMarsh was en route to Nairobi to attend a workshop on "access to international climate finance for small holder farmers.

The video has an incorrect date stamp, but clearly shows the plane's identifying number and appears to have been shot as the plane went down. A cross-reference with Google Street View shows the video comes from the location where the TSB confirmed the crash.

The TSB said the plane went down around 2 p.m. Tuesday, and came to rest on an embankment on the north side of 16th Avenue, near Highway 404, a busy multi-lane highway. The male pilot and a single female passenger were uninjured, though the aircraft sustained significant damage.

In a tweet, the TSB classified the crash as a "runway excursion," meaning the plane likely overshot the runway.

A fence and berm are the only barrier between the airport and the road.

A TSB spokesperson said Wednesday morning that investigators deployed to the crash scene completed their on-site work yesterday evening. The plane was taken to a hangar, where investigators will have a chance to further examine the wreckage.

The cause of the incident has not yet been determined.

Bodies of teens recovered from B.C. crash.
NELSON, B.C. - RCMP in British Columbia confirm two teenagers died when the car they were in slid off a road in southeastern B.C., and tumbled into a frigid river. RCMP Sgt. Chad Badry said the Volkswagen Beetle was recovered Tuesday from the Pend Oreille River near Trail, about 600 kilometres east of Vancouver. "Tragically, both missing teens were located deceased," Badry said in an update posted on the RCMP website early Wednesday. "Conditions were difficult and the recovery operation took a significant amount of time to complete," he said, adding BC Hydro assisted in lowering water levels in the Pend Oreille by reducing discharge from its dam upstream from the accident site.
