At least six people have died and one person is missing after two floatplanes collided mid-air while carrying passengers from a cruise ship's sightseeing tour in Alaska. One is in critical condition, meaning life-threatening injuries paired with vital signs that are extremely unstable and not within normal limits. A spokeswoman for the flightseeing company said Taquan has suspended operations while federal authorities investigate the deadly crash.
Both sightseeing floatplanes were carrying passengers from the Royal Princess cruise ship, which sailed out of Vancouver on Saturday.
The planes collided at 1:08 pm Monday afternoon.
The FAA said neither aircraft was under air traffic control of the crash.
The Coast Guard, which is leading the investigation, told CNN it is still looking for two people. He says the 11th person is missing from that plane. The other plane, a deHavilland Twin Otter, also included cruise travalers.
Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Allen Kenitzer said "the floatplanes collided under unknown circumstances", according to the Associated Press.
Mischa Chernick, of PeaceHealth Ketchikan Medical Center, confirmed ten patients had been admitted to the hospital.

Seaplanes have pontoons mounted under the fuselage so they can land on water. The U.S. Forest Service and Alaska State Troopers have also responded to the scene. Not clear yet what caused the planes to crash.
There were 11 people on one plane, and Petty Officer Jon-Paul Rios says the 10 injured were from that plane.
