Father, daughter survive plane crash in Pennsylvania woods
BEAR CREEK TOWNSHIP, Pa. (AP) -- Personal electronic devices helped lead rescuers to a father and daughter who survived a plane crash in Pennsylvania.
State police say the aircraft had taken off from the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport on Sunday night when it went down in a wooded area in Bear Creek Township.
Authorities asked the U.S. Air Force to help with the search and they pinged the 58-year-old dad’s cellphone and 13-year-old daughter’s iPad to locate them.
State troopers found them huddled together suffering from hypothermia. Emergency responders called it a miracle. They were taken to a hospital.
Their conditions are not known. Authorities are investigating what caused their plane to crash.
