The wife of the lone survivor of Tuesday’s plane crash in northwestern Ontario that killed four people says it’s remarkable he got out alive from the burning wreckage.

Tracy Shead told CBC News her husband, Brian Shead, was sitting in the last row of the small plane en route to North Spirit Lake from Winnipeg.

The Piper PA-31 Navajo went down about 10 a.m. about a kilometre from the runway in the remote community.

“I guess the tail broke off and he was able to crawl out,” Tracy Shead said. “It’s amazing. I’m just so happy he’s alive.”
