Pilot Logesh Lakshmikanthan, 25, and Ravindran Arulanandar, 31, died when a Cessna 150 went down in a heavily wooded area of the massive park, about 20 kilometres south of Whitney, Ont. Both men were from North York.
At 8:30 p.m. ET Tuesday, the pilot had radioed the Toronto Area Control Centre to report an in-flight emergency, saying he'd become disoriented in the clouds.
Using the plane's emergency locator beacon, the crash site was found at 4:40 a.m. the following day.
A rescue team from the Joint Rescue Co-ordination Centre was lowered to the site via helicopter, where the bodies of the two men were found inside the plane. Post-mortem results indicate that both men died as a result of injuries sustained in the crash, according to an OPP news release.
The release says the plane had run out of fuel.
