Austin Hatch  

Two-Time Plane Crash Survivor, College Athlete

Austin Hatch, 19, has survived two airplane crashes eight years apart, crashes that claimed five members of his family. His mother, 5-year-old brother and 11-year-old sister were killed in the first crash; in the second in 2011, his father (the pilot on both flights) and stepmother died and he was seriously injured. In fact, he was so seriously injured that he was in a medically induced coma for nearly two months.

Hatch now plays for the University of Michigan's basketball team--achieving his basketball dream.
