Yeah, I mean, being a local reporter, she is sort of known so that would still be a big story but with the family connection, ugh.

Not that this changes anything but I don't think that carly had any kids, but there were kids on the plane. Thoughts and prayers go out to her family. Such a terrible tragedy.
Still being mum on the other 3 fatalities besides her and the pilot.

True, that would be a different storyline even if not less heartbreaking. I only included the news about the children because that is how I first heard the story. It's tragic no matter whose children it was that perished in this crash.

Well prayers to the Family. I know the players love him and will be playing their hearts out.

As far as the game, this can be a distraction for the team, or a big motivator to win. My guess is they win BIG for their coach. The players must have very heavy hearts. I pray for them as well.

Reports are coming in now that only one child was a passenger on the airplane, a 15 year old male named Michael Walker Vincent.

The report says that one passenger survived the crash but is in critical condition. He is 37 year old, Stephen Wade Berzas.

There were three other injuries on the ground (not passengers) with no report of their names or their conditions.

Shouldn't the title be changed since it seems there were no grandchildren involved? Is that correct?
Changed it right before you posted this. The story changed very quickly.

My brother's daughter was a classmate and close friends with the 15 year old. This is just heart breaking. Prayers for the families. ?

I was going to post this on the main board. Awful to lose such a young reporter.

The aviation guy in me wants to know more about the crash and what kind of plane. Small private planes are so dependent on good maintenance and pilots are more likely to do their own or get sub par maintenance.

Piper Cheyenne with 6 people on and should accommodate 8. Reports are the aircraft caught wires. It landed at the post office a couple miles from the end of runway 04/22. It would have had to been really low for that scenario to play out.
