A rescuer carries a young girl plucked alive from the burning wreckage of the plane crash that killed 158 people.

According to a Daily Mail report, a little girl was miraculously snatched alive from the burning wreckage of the plane crash that killed 158 people in India yesterday.

When rescuers arrived, the engine room where the unknown little girl was had become a fireball. When she was lifted from the mangled fuselage by rescuers, she had severe burns and was covered in foam, but still alive.

The young girl was taken to the hospital in the nearby city of Mangalore. She was one of only eight people who survived the crash.

One of the survivors said, “As soon as the plane touched the runway, it started vibrating and before we could realize what was happening, we heard a loud sound and the plane broke into two pieces. Some passengers jumped from the plane as it began to break up, and plunged into a valley.'
