A basketball recruit from Fort Wayne, Indiana has survived after being involved in his second airplane crash. He is currently in critical condition at Munson Medical Center in Traverse City.
Young Austin Hatch is a promising basketball player at Canterbury School. He's posed to attend the University of Michigan on scholarship in 2013 if he survives.
The crash happened Friday night as his father piloted a single engine plane. Austin was flying with his father Dr. Stephen Hatch and step mother Kim Hatch. Only Austin survived.
The family had been on route to their summer home in northern Michigan when the plane crashed into a residential garage in Charlevoix.
Austin is in an induced coma with bruising on his brain. His ribs and collarbone were also fractured.
In 2003 Stephen Hatch was piloting a single-prop 1990 Beechcraft-Bonanza when it crashed killing Austin's mother, brother and sister. He was just 8 years old. In 2005 it was ruled that Hatch's inaccurate preflight planning lead to inadequate fuel supply and subsequent fuel exhaustion leading to the accident.
