The 11-year-old sole survivor of a plane crash was saved by her father’s last hug, her mother believes.
“Her last memory is her dad just grabbed her and held her really, really tight,” Christie Perdue told ABC News’ Transportation Correspondent Gio Benitez about her late daughter, Laney.
Perdue explained that Laney suffered injuries only on one side of her body, and the other side was protected by one of her father’s “big, bear hugs.”
She also shared that Laney is now recovering at the children’s hospital in Grand Rapids, Michigan. She is talking again, and on Sunday, she stood up.
