LE BOURGET, France (AP) - A teenager rescued after Tuesday's plane crash in the Indian Ocean has arrived back in France, even as the search continues for any other possible survivors.
The battered 14-year-old girl flew to Paris from the Comoros Islands and was met by her father. He gave her a hug and tried to lift her spirits with a joke. She was flown home on a French government plane carrying medical equipment.
Her father describes Bahia Bakari as a fragile girl who can barely swim. She spent more than 13 hours in the water clinging to wreckage. Besides suffering from hypothermia, she was found with a broken collarbone and many bruises.
The 152 other people on the Yemeni plane, including the girl's mother, are presumed dead.
At the crash site, a French commander says military planes have spotted what look like life jackets floating in the sea.
