Miracle Survival: 7 Years Old Girl Survives Plane Crash That Killed Her Whole Family

For the seven years old girl, we say it's a miraculous survival but for the rest of her family, it was a big tragedy... This is the story of a seven years old girl Sailor Gutzler, who was the only survival of a plane crash that killed her family and the pilot, after their aircraft developed engine problems while they were heading back to Illinois after a holiday in Florida.

 According to reports, the little girl tried waking up other members of her family before walking down through the woods with injuries to look for help. After hours of walking she found help from an old man Larry Wilkins who lives close by the woods.
According to the 71 years old Larry, he had been watching TV when he heard her faint knock on the door at around 6.30pm local time on Friday.
“She was bleeding pretty bad, her legs were bleeding, her face had a bloody nose. She was barefoot, she only had one sock on,” he told US TV news network NBC.
 “She’s a terribly brave little girl, I’ll tell you that. I can’t imagine a seven-year-old doing that.
 “She told me that her mom and her dad were dead, and she was in a plane crash, and the plane was upside down. She asked if she could stay here. I got a wash cloth and cleaned her up. And of course called 911.”
Police came few minutes later, she was taken to the hospital and her minor injuries were treated. Sailor has been discharged from th hospital. She is now being looked after by her grandparents.

Kentucky State Police said those killed in the crash were her dad Marty Gutzler, 49, her mum Kimberly Gutzler, 45, their daughter Piper Gutzler, nine, and Piper's cousin, Sierra Walder, 14.
