An 11-year-old girl was the only survivor of a plane crash Saturday on Beaver Island on Lake Michigan, according to authorities and local reports.
The commercial aircraft, carrying the five passengers, was arriving at Welke Airport, just off Michigan’s northern peninsula, when it crashed, the Charlevoix County Sheriff's Office said.
The Coast Guard tweeted that two of the passengers survived, but officials later reported that four people, including the girl's father, died.
The girl was airlifted to McLaren Hospital in Petoskey, Michigan. As she was being transported, medical personnel began giving her chest compressions, the Coast Guard tweeted.
Officials have not released the identities of those involved, saying they are still contacting the victims' families.
It was not immediately clear what caused the twin-engine Britten-Norman plane to crash.
