Crashed Plane Discovered in Eaton

Eaton Fire Department personnel are making their way through Eaton woods to the site of a plane crash. The small aircraft was discovered by a recreational four-wheeler traveling through the area near Route 26 and Westcott Road.

"The person who discovered the wreckage said he thought it was a day or two old," said Madison County E911 Communications Director Paul Hartnett. "We don't know for certain that there are any fatalities, but we have been told there may be one."

According to Hartnett, no planes have been reported missing, though he said he heard a report out of Chenango County that a light aircraft may have been missing from there for a day or two.

"But that is not confirmed," Hartnett said.
