Dog unhurt in Michigan plane crash that killed 2

A dog has escaped unscathed from a small plane crash in northern Michigan that killed an Indiana couple and critically injured a 16-year-old boy. The Petoskey News-Review reported the male labradoodle is named Brady and belongs to Austin Hatch, who was being treated Monday at Munson Medical Center in Traverse City. Friday's crash claimed the lives of 46-year-old pilot Stephen Hatch of Fort Wayne, Ind., and his 44-year-old wife Kimberly, Austin Hatch's stepmother.

Julie Whitley, an animal control supervisor with the Charlevoix County Sheriff’s Department, said an animal control officer picked up Brady on Saturday within a mile of the crash site in Charlevoix. Whitley said another dog aboard the plane was killed in the crash.

Whitley said officials used an imbedded microchip to identify Brady.
