Ministry: 2 walked away from Kansas plane crash
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- A teen ministry official says two of the five people aboard a small plane that crashed in Kansas on the way to a Christian youth rally in Iowa were able to walk away from the crash.
One later died. A hospital spokesman said Sunday that the lone survivor, 22-year-old Hannah Luce, is in serious condition in a burn unit in Kansas City, Kan.
Luce is the daughter of Ron Luce, the founder of Teen Mania Ministries, which was sponsoring the weekend rally.
A Teen Mania Ministries spokeswoman, Cindy Mallette, says in an emailed statement that Luce and a ministry employee, Austin Anderson, were able to get out of the plane and walk to a nearby road to get help after the Friday crash.
Anderson died Saturday at a Wichita hospital.
