Sole Crash Survivor Slowly Improving
The lone survivor of a small plane crash that killed four family members remains in serious condition, but is slowly improving.
Joshua Menora, 13, was burned over 60 percent of his body when he was thrown from the plane his grandfather was piloting as it crashed on Interstate 75 in Michigan, flipped over and burst into flames.
The crash killed Moshe Menora and three of his grandchildren: Rebecca Menora, 16, Rachel Menora, 14, and Sarah Klein, 17. All four were flown to their native Israel last week for burial.
Menora was a well-known business man in Skokie.
The Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board continue to investigate the cause of the crash.
