Teenager, survivor of Yemenia crash to Join His Father in France

Bahia Bakari, teenager who survived Yemenia crash in Comoros was due to be flown back to France to join her father

Her father, when interviewed, he recalled and said "When we arrived at the airport, I kissed both, then my wife turned around, she looked at me and she waved," he said. "That was the last time I saw my wife alive. My daughter never turned, and she went ahead...... I will see her again I hope, but for my wife it was the last time."

Doctors consider there is no problem for her to be repatriated" despite a broken collar bone and burns to the knee,

When she was asked what happend, it was difficult for Bahia to remember everything.

She said that, at a point in time, instructions were given to passengers to strap themselves in,".... "She said that afterwards, she felt something like electricity -- that was the term she used.
"And then, very quickly, she found herself in the water hanging on to a piece of the aircraft with which she struggled to stay alive for more than 10 or so hours."

When rescuers emerged in the clear light of day, she was too weak to react.
"We tried to throw a life buoy. She could not grab it. I had to jump in the water to get her," one rescuer told France's Europe 1 radio, saying that she was spotted bobbing in the middle of bodies and debris.
