Dorhauer says the survivors are all related and were headed home to St. Louis when the plane went down.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch is reporting that the family members are from St. Charles County. Neighbors have identified the victims as: Gary Sulin, 45, his mother, Mary Sulin, 73, and his daughter Sailor, 9.
Only one passenger suffered injuries, Mary Sulin is said to have a broken collar bone and ribs. Neighbors say Sulin is afraid of flying and hadn’t been in a plane in years.
