    Toddler wouldn't leave plane wreckage without teddy bear


    Rescuers who helped find a three-year-old girl alive in the crumpled wreckage of an airplane in the rugged British Columbia mountains say they knew she was OK when she cried for her teddy bear.

    The girl, Kate Williams, miraculously survived the crash on Sunday because she was strapped into a child's car seat, said Mike Plonka, a member of Golden's search-and-rescue team.


    "You could see that she was very scared. Her big concern at the time was her little teddy bear. She didn't want to leave without it.

    "She was just pointing at it and calling it 'Baby."'


    "I got her out and I handed her to Bruno. She was calling out for her teddy bear. I picked up the teddy bear to give it to her but ... she wasn't too happy that it was covered in snow so I brushed it off," Elliston said.
