MARBLEHEAD, Ohio — An air ambulance carrying five people crashed moments after takeoff from Pelee Island in Lake Erie, killing at least two people, and U.S. and Canadian divers searched Sunday for the missing pilot.

Search boats rescued a man and a woman shortly after the plane crashed about 200 yards west of the Canadian island late Saturday, said Constable Wayne O'Brien of the Ontario Provincial Police. All those aboard were from Canada.
