Kentucky plane crash: 'Brave' girl survivor praised

A seven-year-old girl who survived a plane crash in the US state of Kentucky and walked barefoot to find help has been praised for her courage.

Larry Wilkins, 71, told the BBC that he answered the door to the "brave girl" on Friday and that she told him her parents were dead.

The plane was later found along with the bodies of the girl's parents, her sister and a cousin.

The girl has been named as Sailor Gutzler of Nashville, Illinois.

Joe Inwood reports.
