2-Year-Old Crash Survivor Remains In Serious Condition
EUGENE, Ore. (AP) _ Two-year-old Aubrey Holst, who survived a plane crash that killed two relatives, remained in serious but stable condition Friday but was alert and talking, a hospital spokeswoman said.
The girl, who was found moaning in the wreckage of a small plane Wednesday, was being treated for broken arms and internal injuries.
″She’s got a good attitude,″ said Mary Sakakibara, spokeswoman at Sacred Heart Hospital. ″She’s still alert.″
Killed in the crash near the Oregon Coast were Aubrey’s father, pilot Carson Holst, 32; her grandmother, Anna ″Effie″ Holst, 63, both of Oakridge; and Darlinda Sue Taylor, 27, of Aguila, Ariz., identified as Holst’s girlfriend.
The plane apparently struck a tree and tumbled down a thickly forested ridge. The girl was in the wreckage for about six hours. The cause of the crash remained under investigation.
