KITCHENER-WATERLOO, Ontario -- Two pilots and a critical-care paramedic remained in hospital Saturday after their helicopter responding to an emergency in northern Ontario crashed near Temagami, Ont., Canada.

A spokesperson for Ornge, which co-ordinates the air ambulance system in Ontario, says the injuries are non-life-threatening.

A second paramedic involved in the crash was released.

The four-person crew was on its way late Friday to meet a land ambulance involved in transporting a badly injured snowmobiler, who had smashed into a dock on the middle of Rib Lake.
