Brave Dad Sacrifices His Life To Save Daughter In Plane Crash

In a horrific plane crash in Beaver Island, Michigan, a dad sacrificed his life as a human shield to his 11-year-old daughter.

Plane Crash At Beaver Island

Laney was scheduled to visit friends at Beaver Island, Michigan, before the incident happened. As she boarded the commuter plane, her dad, Mike Perdue, came with her at the last minute. Hence, the father-daughter boarded the plane together towards the island.

The trip was safe until they arrived at Beaver and crash-landed at the airport. According to the report, Mike shielded his daughter as much as possible to save her from the crash. And indeed, he succeeded, although he lost his life along with the pilot and two other passengers.

“He cradled her in his arms,” Laney’s mom, Christie Perdue, revealed in an interview. “She doesn’t remember anything, except for her daddy squeezing her so hard.”

A Miracle And A Tragedy

The 11-year-old suffered multiple injuries and broken bones. But all the little girl’s wounds are only found on one side of her body. That’s why many assumed her dad cradled her precious daughter on the other side to save her life.

Mike’s survived wife, Christie, admitted she was devastated by what happened. Although she called the incident both a “miracle and a tragedy.”

She explained, “In my heart of hearts, I know that he truly did save her, and he protected her.” Then, she added, “I’m not surprised at all that he did that. That he sacrificed, and he was her hero.”

The Perdue family still finds it hard to accept losing their father. But the support from the community immensely helped them get by. A fundraising page was set up for the family to raise $100,000 to cover family expenses.

Let’s keep the Perdue family in our prayers as they continue to mourn for the loss of an amazing dad like Mike. May God overwhelm their hearts with the peace and comfort that comes from Him.
