The de Havilland, which is a seaplane, was piloted by Neil Lunt, 58, of Liberty Lake, Washington, according to a press release by the Sheriff's Office Monday. Sean Fredrickson, 48, of Lake Oswego, Oregon, was a passenger along with his children and step-children -- a 16-year-old female, a 16-year-old male and an 11-year-old male. Officials did not name the children.
Another male that was on the plane has not yet been identified by authorities.
Investigators have identified the two occupants in the Cessna but their names are being held pending notification of next of kin, according to the release.
Two victims were recovered from the aircrafts immediately after the crash before the planes sank. Three occupants have been removed from the planes since they sank but KCSO sonar teams and dive teams are still working to recover additional victims from the sunken aircrafts. The depth of the water and where the victims are located in the wreckage are making recovery operations difficult, the release aid.
Both the NTSB and the Federal Aviation Administration are investigating the collision.
