Dec. 27, 2012 – Investigators have located the flight data
recorder that may hold clues to a plane crash that claimed the life
of a six-month-old infant in Nunavut.

Julie Leroux, a spokeswoman for the Transportation Safety Board
of Canada, says officials will be studying the black box located by
the RCMP to help determine what happened.

She says the agency has launched a full investigation.

The RCMP say a chartered plane with nine people on board crashed
on Saturday shortly after 6 p.m. Eight survivors are all being
treated for non-life threatening injuries.

The Perimeter Aviation LP aircraft went down in the community of
Sanikiluaq, located on the Belcher Islands in the southeastern
corner of Hudson Bay.

A release from the RCMP said the Fairchild Metro 3/23 twin-engine
turbo prop crashed near the end of the runway of the airport, which
sits on the north tip of Flaherty Island, roughly 150 kilometres
from the Quebec shoreline.
