Things are not as bad as they first appeared for Kyle and Amanda Franklin, who were injured after they were forced to make an emergency landing during an air show last weekend at the Brownsville-South Padre Island International Airport. According to a blog post by Matt Younkin at Indy Transponder: “Kyle was not injured and or burned as badly as reported earlier by the media and is expected to make a full and rapid recovery. The updates we are receiving on Amanda are increasingly optimistic… the doctors are giving us the impression that things are not as bad as first reported and her chances for a full recovery are getting better, not worse.”
Younkin, who is Amanda Franklin’s big brother, also credits Kyle Franklin for saving his sister’s life: “I also have to extend a very sincere thanks to my brother-in-law Kyle who I strongly credit for the fact that my little sister is still with us. I can say without a shadow of a doubt that he made no less than five quick decisions in the air and on the ground that gave her a second chance at life!” Read his full post here.
