Six people are alive after a small plane they were travelling in crashed into a snowy field north of the community of Kisbey, Sask., Sunday morning. 

Emergency crews received a call about a plane going down at about 10:13 a.m. CST.  Paramedics were on scene helping with injured passengers.

All six survived. The RCMP said they included four adults and two children.

The six-seat plane was a single-engine Piper Cherokee 6.

The pilot, a Carlyle man, was still in hospital Monday. The extent of his injuries wasn't immediately available.

Bev McArthur was minutes from the location and saw the aftermath of the crash.

"I guess apparently…it hit one of the hills and then it must have slid over there or something," she told CBC News.

Her daughter Armanda McArthur was also nearby.

"From the way that we saw it from the main grid road it looked fine, but I guess on the other side it was missing a wing," she said. "I didn't see any major wreckage around it or anything like that."

RCMP said they don't know at this point where the plane took off from or where it was going.

Transport Canada has been called.

The crash scene is located about eight kilometres north of the community of Kisbey and about 100 metres from Highway 605.

Kisbey is located about 87 kilometres east of Weyburn, Sask.
