"You're Gonna Die Up There" Plane Crashes On 11,000ft Mountain In Denali National Park American Pilot & Four Polish Nationalists Die

4 AUGUST 2018

Tourists' icy tomb on 11,000ft mountain: Wreckage of plane is pictured perched precariously on Alaskan peak where it's too dangerous to retrieve four bodies from a crash after desperate pilot called for help before they all died in the wilderness 

Perched precariously on a mountain ridge near the top of North America's tallest peak, this is the wreckage of a sightseeing plane that crashed with the pilot and four Polish tourists on board. Searchers on Monday found four people dead in the plane in Alaska's Denali National Park - a day and a half after thick clouds hampered the response to distress calls that they were alive but injured. The fifth is missing and presumed dead. The pilot has been identified as Craig Layson, of Michigan, but park officials say the names of the four Polish passengers aren't being released at the request of the Polish Embassy in Los Angeles. The crash occurred in rough terrain, on a hanging glacier which traverses a crevasse, near the top of Thunder Mountain, about 14 miles southwest of Denali, North America's tallest mountain, on Saturday.
