DENVER — Two men from Mexico who survived a fiery plane crash in Colorado are being treated for serious injuries.

Hospital spokeswoman Kimberly Williams said Monday that Miguel Henriqez was in critical condition and Moises Carranza was in serious condition at St. Mary's Hospital in Grand Junction.

They were injured Sunday when the private plane crashed while trying to land in Aspen.

Both are pilots and one was co-piloting the plane along with Sergio Carranza Brabata of Mexico, who died in the crash.

It was not clear who was in control of the plane when it crashed.

Officials say the flight originated in Mexico and stopped in Tucson, Ariz., before heading to Aspen.

The airport is challenging because it is surrounded by mountains, forcing pilots to descend sharply.
