In a shocking plane accident, eight people are feared to be dead after two planes collided over Coeur d'Alene Lake in Idaho and then sank, according to reports by CNN. 

Kootenai County Sheriff's Office Lt. Ryan Higgins told CNN, "A call came in for two planes that had collided over the lake around 2:20 p.m." Two victims, both deceased, were recovered from the planes before they sank. 

The other six victims, who include children and adults, are believed to be dead. As the investigation is underway, the cause of the collision is yet to be determined. 

The remaining six victims are still unaccounted for but are believed to be dead, Higgins said. They include adults and children but no further details were available. According to reports by the CNN,  the planes were located by a sonar team in 127 feet of water, Higgins said, and will not be recovered until either Monday or Tuesday.
