A 3-year-old girl was the lone survivor of a plane crash in Canada’s Rocky Mountains after the Cessna 172 went down on Sunday, the Canadian Press reported.
The unidentified toddler, who suffered head injuries in the crash, was rushed to Alberta Children’s Hospital in Calgary. Her grandfather and another man were killed, the Canadian Press reported.
The plane was on its way to Edmonton and crashed shortly after takeoff in the Blaeberry River area. Bad weather originally complicated search efforts, and the girl was found after rescuers were lowered into the crash site from a private helicopter.
