    Lucky girl! Why are people (comments on news sites etc) suspicious of this story?

    I had no idea they were. Only thing I can think of is that this is such an amazing survival story, they're having trouble accepting it.

    Autumn told her dad (who had no idea her step grandpa had a pilot's license and would be flying her himself) that the plane flew through a bank of cloud and straight into the side of a mountain, and caught fire. She tried to pull her grandparents out and waited with them for a day until hiking down the 'Easy Pass' trail for two days, which rescuers say is some of the toughest, most challenging terrain there is.

    Autumn got through all that with just scratches and a temporary 'breakdown' in muscle tissue from too much exercise.

    The wreckage and step-grandparents Leland and Sharon Bowman have still not been located but the search will continue today, weather permitting.

    Here is a picture of the trail she hiked down. It looks like they are going to have their work cut out for them to find the plane.

    I hate to be critical of the rescuers, but they should have taken tracking dogs out there and back tracked her yesterday. I know there are no survivors, so it's not a priority. But come on, you can't get to a plane crash in the woods like that without walking.

    The first day or so after she was found authorities reported she didn't tell them anything about her grandparents, then her dad mentioned to the media that the grandparents were deceased.

    I think people are naturally skeptical when something seems unbelievable, like balloon boy, in this case two people apparently died in the crash while a 3rd walked away w/minor injuries after a plane crash.

    Interesting that the two planes crashed the same day, less then maybe 50 miles apart.
