This is so sad.
Children Killed After Plane Crashes Into Their Home
According to The NY Daily News
The devastated mother of two girls killed when a small plane crashed into their Connecticut home bared her pain Saturday in a heartbreaking online message.
“I can’t begin to imagine my life without you,” Joan Mitchell posted on the Facebook page of her 13-year-old daughter, Sade Brantley.
“You and Madisyn were my world. My heart has been broken to the point of no repair…My life will never be the same without you and Madisyn.”
Sadie and her 1-year-old sister Madisyn Mitchell were inside their East Haven home when a private plane piloted by an ex-Microsoft executive dropped from the sky and barreled into the house Friday morning.
The pilot, Bill Henningsgaard, and his 17-year-son Max were also killed in the crash.
The accident was Henningsgaard’s second in four years.
Joan Mitchell, after escaping the wreckage and flames, stood outside the home screaming for help, witnesses said.
Then she raced back inside the Cape-Cod style house in a vain hunt for the missing girls.
On Saturday night, Mitchell made a quiet appearance at a vigil for her slain daughters.
The shattered mother, wearing a blue v-neck t-shirt, choked back sobs as she embraced received waves of anguished well-wishers.
“She’s doing as well as can be expected,” East Haven Mayor Joseph Maturo said earlier.
A friend of Sade’s described the rising 8th grader as a “shy and timid” girl who loved music.
“It was devastating to hear it was her,” said Starriana Zmuda, a fellow student at Joseph Melillo Middle School in East Haven.
This is a tragedy all around…..prayers go out to the families.
