    Police: Girl, 7, Says She Survived Ky. Plane Crash

    From ABC News:
    A 7-year-old girl survived a plane crash that killed four people Friday night, and the disoriented little girl walked away from the wreckage and reported the crash to a local resident, authorities said.

    The small Piper PA-34 reported engine trouble and lost contact with air traffic controllers as it was flying over the southwestern part of Kentucky about 5:55 p.m. CST, the FAA said.

    About a half hour later, a Lyon County resident called 911 and told dispatchers that a 7-year-old girl had walked to his home and said she had been involved in a plane crash, said Sgt. Dean Patterson of the Kentucky State Police.

    "This girl came out of the wreckage herself and found the closest residence and reported the plane crash," Patterson said. "It's a miracle in a sense that she survived it, but it's tragic that four others didn't."

    The girl was in emotional distress and taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, Patterson said. At that point, authorities launched a search for the crash site and also confirmed with the FAA that they had received a distress call.

    About two hours later, authorities found the crash site in a heavily wooded area near Kentucky lake, a popular tourist attraction in the state. They discovered four bodies, including the pilot and the three passengers.

    Patterson said the plane had taken off from Key West, Florida, and was headed to Mount Vernon, Illinois.

    The identities of the deceased and the survivor were not immediately released. Patterson said he didn't know the girl's relationship to the people on the plane.

    I just put the whole story here as it was a short write up. Fascinating bit, a very lucky little girl, shame about the four others that died though. God rest their souls, possibly her family.

    Very sad story... yet uplifting in that this child miraculously survived.

    Well, if she says she survived it, I will have to take her word for it. LOL.
