UMCA Rich Tree Academy said the family was part of the school community for many years. David, Adam and Emma lit up the hallways and were very positive towards teachers and friends. The children’s parents have always been closely involved with the school community. They will miss the family very much.

The mayor of King City called the death a heartbreaking and great loss for the community.

The aircraft was piloted by Viktor Dotsenko. He radioed air traffic controllers that his engine had shut down. The Transport Safety Board of Canada has sent a delegation there to assist in the investigation led by US authorities.
