Girl survives US plane crash that kills 4 others
WASHINGTON, DC, USA – A 7-year-old girl walked free from the wreckage of a private plane that crashed in a wooded area of Kentucky on Friday killing 4 others on board, US police said.
Police were alerted to the crash when they received an emergency call from a local resident, they said in a statement on Facebook.
"The caller told police that a seven-year-old female had walked to his home reporting that she had been involved in a plane crash," Sergeant Dean Patterson of Kentucky State Police said in the official statement.
The girl was distressed and taken to a hospital for what police called non life-threatening injuries.
Emergency crews raced to the area and later located the small plane.
"Investigators on scene confirm 4 fatalities at the crash site. The fatalities account for the pilot and remaining passengers," a subsequent police statement on Facebook said.
