ALASKA - Paramedic Maddox Burts, registered nurse Rob Cartner, and pilot Glen Morthorpe were killed this week when their aircraft crashed near Coopers Landing, Alaska.

The Anchorage Daily News reports it is currently unclear why the plane crashed, but two other air ambulance companies had declined to fly the trip because of weather concerns.

Alaska State Troopers said their remains were removed from the site and were sent to the State Medical Examiner in Anchorage for positive identification.
