Seven people, including a family from Texas, have died in a tragic small plane crash in rural Canada on Wednesday evening, authorities say.
Pilot Otabek Oblokulov, along with his wife and kids — ages 3, 11 and 15 — all of Houston, were killed when their Piper PA-32 went down in the city of Kingston Wednesday evening, friends of the victims told CBC News.
Another couple, Bobomurod Nabiev and his wife, who live in the Toronto area but are originally from Uzbekistan, also died on board, according to the report.

The plane came down about four miles from the Kingston airport shortly after 5pm ET and all seven on board the plane died in the crash.
