Victims of Madeline Island plane crash identified

by

ASHLAND, WI (WSAU) -  The plane crash on Madeline Island over the weekend claimed the lives of two brothers. Ashland County Sheriff Mick Brennan says the pilot was 63-year-old Dr. Rick Renwick of La Crosse. His brother, 58-year-old Bruce Renwick of Waunakee also perished in the crash.

Brennan says a witness saw the plane abort a landing and come back around. The plane apparently stalled out and then dove into a wooded area at a 40 to-60 degree angle. The resulting fire severely burned the victims. Positive identification was made using dental records at a Dane County facility.

Dr. Renwick was an OB-GYN specialist at Gunderson Clinic in La Crosse.

The FAA is continuing to investigate the crash.
