Toddler survives Yemenia Airbus crash

A gift of hope was given when a toddler was reported to be found alive after a plane crash into the Indian Ocean. Just imagine the reactions of the rescuers who found the child alive:

News like plane crashes are so sad. Flying is still a very safe mode of transportation, but if a plane goes down, there's so little that can be done. Let's hope this story of a child alive is true. I think we need to hear good news like that.

Added: Well, it seems that the original news reports were wrong. It was an adolescent girl who survived, the sole survivor. One can only imagine the feelings she must have experienced as she waited for rescue.
