All Hope Was Lost At This Crash Site…Until They Made A Shocking Discovery


Just yesterday, on November 4, 2015, a devastating accident rocked South Sudan as a cargo plane full of passengers crashed shortly after takeoff. When investigators and rescue workers arrived on the scene, they knew that there was little hope of finding survivors in the charred, twisted wreckage.

But just as they were about to give up all hope, they made a miraculous discovery.

Prospects were grim as rescue workers stepped onto the site of the horrific crash.

The plane was only designed to hold cargo and about 12 crew members, so it’s believed that overcrowding caused it to go down.

Approximately 36 passengers are confirmed dead, but numbers will likely rise as the wreckage is moved.

But just as they were about to give up hope, rescuers made a heartbreaking — but completely amazing — discovery.

They found a one-year-old girl crying underneath the wreckage. She’s one of two reported survivors, and volunteers were completely floored by the tiny child’s will to live. The other survivor ultimately succumbed to injuries sustained in the crash, but somehow, this brave little one made it.

The girl, named Nyalou Thong, was immediately rushed to the hospital. She’s reportedly doing well after receiving treatment for a broken leg and other minor injuries.

Sadly, Nyalou’s mother and brother died in the crash. As of now, rescuers are attempting to contact other family members.

She is expected to make a full recovery.

This child truly is a tiny miracle. Officials and volunteers who responded to the crash signed on for the recovery mission with heavy hearts, but this discovery proved to be a glimmer of hope. We’re sending our thoughts to the people of South Sudan as they recover from this tragedy, and to little Nyalou as she heals.
