A father and mother traveling with their son in a single-engine aircraft were killed when it crashed in Great Smokey Mountains National Park.

A recovery is underway to retrieve the bodies. Rough mountain terrain, however, is weighing down efforts. The victims are identified as 41-year-old David Starling, 8-year-old Hunter Starling, and 42-year-old Kim Smith.

The NTSB has opened an investigation. An article on this accident is available here.
