This boy's dad is responsible for killing four members of his family in two separate crashes. (This is an old story.)

Teen in drug-induced coma after surviving plane crash that killed his father... eight years after he survived crash that killed his mother and siblings

UPDATED: 18:02 EST, 26 June 2011


A 16-year-old promising basketball player is fighting for survival after surviving the second plane crash of his life.

Austin Hatch, 16, of Fort Wayne, Indiana, has been put in a drug-induced coma as he struggles to recover from his injuries. He was in a crash on Friday night that killed his father Dr Stephen Hatch, 46, and his stepmother, Kim.

Austin and his father, who was a pilot, survived another crash in 2003 that killed the boy’s mother, Julie, and his two siblings, Lindsay, 11 and Ian, 5.

Dr Hatch was killed on Friday after his single-engine plane smashed into a garage in Michigan, as they returned home to Indiana after a vacation.

Austin, who only survived the 2003 crash aged eight when his father flung him out of the burning plane, is in a critical condition from Friday’s incident.

‘He never talked about (the previous crash) one time,’ Canterbury School basketball coach Dan Kline said. ‘I'm sure he carried it inside.’

 

‘He's a very mature young man (and) you'd never know he was 16 years old,’ Mr Kline said, adding he is someone ‘who can handle things’.

Austin fractured his skill, suffered two punctured lungs and broke his ribs in the crash on Friday night, and doctors are monitoring him closely.

‘Right now, (the team) are just trying to collect our thoughts and stick together,’ Mr Kline said. ‘They're a close-knit group.’

David Bojrab, Dr Hatch's close friend and business partner, said: 'His wife and two children were in flames and he was never able to reach them.

'Steve reached over to his son who was sitting in front with him and tossed him out the window to save his life.'

In a terrible twist of fate, the family were returning from their summer home on Walloon Lake when they crashed in 2003.

This was the same place they were flying to on Friday when their single-engine plane flew into a garage near the Charlevoix Municipal Airport.

Dr Bojrab said Dr Hatch loved flying so much he felt 'compelled' to continue, even after his wife died.

He said: 'He was such a strong proponent of flying and teaching people to fly ... I think he felt compelled to continue his passion.

'He felt compelled to show people that accidents do happen. He didn't want people to look in the other direction.'

He described Austin as 'the apple of his dad's eye', and said Dr Hatch took great pride in his son's athletic prowess.

Dr Bojrab said his friend had planned to go to Spain to celebrate his parents' 50th wedding anniversary with the rest of his family, but he cancelled the trip to spend time with Austin and his adult stepchildren.

He said: 'Steve was a very big family man.'

'He (Dr Hatch) was such a strong proponent of flying and teaching people to fly ... I think he felt compelled to continue his passion'

A federal report into the 2003 crash found inaccurate pre-flight planning resulted in the plane not having enough fuel.

The National Transportation Safety Board also ruled that a utility pole the airplane hit during its forced landing, a low ceiling and dark night also contributed to the crash.

But Dr Bojrab said his friend disputed the report's findings, believing equipment failure caused the crash.

He said: 'When he crashed, it was an inferno, which makes you wonder how he could have been out of gas.'

A spokesman for the NTSB, Keith Holloway, said investigators were on the scene today and would be examining the aircraft, interviewing witnesses and requesting air traffic control communications and radar data.

He expected a preliminary report within ten days and a final report determining a cause within 18 months.

Smh, how could the dad continue flying after the first big accident? I would not get on a plane with him after that. If he wanted to keep flying because its his passion, then he should have flew by himself. How sad, the kids whole family gone like that.

This kid is fine today. Lives with his uncle. Just signed to play B-ball for a Michigan university.

But yeah, I don't trust small planes either.

Coco, go for it!

I recall both incident. It was pilot's error with both crash. After the first crash he should have retrained, learned more how to correct errors in flying. If I recall correctly both crash happened at night. He probably did not have much experience flying a plane at night.
