Tribal council president Judith Sayers was aboard the small plane that crashed in July and says she was trapped, upside-down, with her head underwater. She believes she would have drowned if her son, who was also a passenger, had not pulled her out of the wreckage.
The tribal council statement praises the “selfless and heroic” actions of Ahousaht skipper Ken Brown, who responded to Monday’s crash and pulled most of those aboard to safety as the plane quickly filled with water.
