    This just breaks my heart.....

    "Mother had to walk a MILE for help after surviving Alaska plane crash and watching helplessly as her baby died in wreckage"

    "When efforts by the 25-year-old to revive her five-month-old son Wyatt failed, Miss Coffee made the agonizing decision to go in search of rescuers."

    'I believe she's the real hero in this,' Saint Mary's Village Police Officer Fred Lamont Jr said. The village, like many in the remote region, is off the road system and residents rely on aircraft to get around."

    Thanks Blondie in Spokane, for the link. Those pictures of Ms. Coffee and her baby just break my heart. He looked so happy and healthy. She truly is a hero to guide the rescuers there and help with other wounded people.
