A Canadian is among the four people killed in the Alaska float plane crash Monday, Global Affairs confirmed.

The name of the Canadian has not been released due to privacy concerns, Guillaume Bérubé, Global Affairs spokesperson told Global News on Tuesday.

Four people were killed after two floatplanes carrying cruise ship tourists collided near the southeast Alaska town of Ketchikan, the U.S. Coast Guard said. Ten other passengers were injured and two are still missing.

All 14 passengers on both sightseeing planes were from the cruise ship Royal Princess, on a seven-day trip from Vancouver to Anchorage and operated by Princess Cruises, the Washington Post reported.

The ship left Vancouver on May 11 and is scheduled to arrive in Anchorage on Saturday.
