A 76-year-old man was killed Sunday afternoon after his glider plane crashed in a corn field in Zorra Township, in southwestern Ontario.
Police say the glider was towed by a plane and released to glide when it crashed into a corn field near the 31st Line about 2 p.m.
The pilot of the plane located the glider and confirmed the location for first responders who found the man dead on the scene.
The OPP forensic investigations unit is on the scene and Transport Canada is expected to attend the site of the crash on Monday, Const. Lisa Narancsik said, adding the glider originated from a nearby private flying club.
Police are withholding the identity of the deceased until next of kin are notified.
