A 16-year-old girl has been found after hiking to safety from the scene of a plane crash in a mountainous area of the north-western US.

Autumn Veatch had been on a small plane with her step-grandparents which crashed in the North Cascades National Park in Washington State.

According to BBC News, the girl is being treated in hospital, but has no life-threatening injuries. It is not known what happened to her step-grandparents, whom she attempted to pull from the wreckage.
