(CNN)Eight people are believed to be dead after two planes collided over Coeur d'Alene Lake in Idaho and then sank, Kootenai County Sheriff's Office Lt. Ryan Higgins said.

A call came in for two planes that had collided over the lake around 2:20 p.m., Higgins told CNN Sunday.

Two victims, both deceased, were recovered from the air crafts before they sank, Higgins said.

The remaining six victims are still unaccounted for but are believed to be dead, Higgins said. They include adults and children but no further details were available.

CNN is reporting that one plane is a Cessna TU206G but the other plane is unidentified. KXLY (https://www.kxly.com/i-saw-the-rest-of-the-explosion-and-all-the-debris-falling-down-witness-describes-deadly-coeur-dalene-plane-crash/) and my own newsroom are reporting that the second plane is a de Havilland DHC-2.

I believe the DHC-2 is one used for sightseeing flights over the lake. I know they've got one of them, and in this area I don't think there are more than one.

5. "big Sky: should have gone away with the 1956 Grand Canyon mid-air collision

The Grand Canyon mid-air collision occurred on June 30, 1956, when a United Airlines Douglas DC-7 struck a Trans World Airlines Lockheed L-1049 Super Constellation over the Grand Canyon National Park. All 128 onboard both flights perished, making it the first commercial airline crash to result in more than 100 deaths.
