Why be rude in such a tragic event? Silence can be golden. Thoughts and prayers out to all families affected.

I thought they found the pilot and not the kids?

So sad if these kids do not make it.

They've recovered four bodies as of last night (August 9th). The pilot and his teenage son have been identified. I haven't seen anything about the other two victims, but have a awful feeling they may be the teenager and the baby that were in one of the houses.

You thought wrong. You may want to have someone read the article to you going forward.

Good lord can you not resist being a jerk ever?
