ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) An Alaska State Troopers spokeswoman says a plane crash near the remote western Alaska village of Saint Marys has killed four of the 10 people aboard, including an infant boy.
Spokeswoman Megan Peters said early today by email that the pilot and three passengers were killed in last night's crash.
There was no immediate word on the condition of the other passengers.

She says troopers and an air ambulance service are assisting the survivors.
