The other occupant was transported to Pine Falls Hospital. The a/c is reported to be upside down in a forested area with the wings torn off. The pilot may have been doing touch and goes on the nearby lake prior to the accident, but details have yet to be confirmed. TSB is looking into the occurrence.
2001-08-09: UPDATE TSB reported that the float-equipped PA-18A was doing touch-and-go landings on Rice Lake. The pilot in the front seat was being monitored by the PIC in the rear seat.
