Comoros Crash Survivor Comes Home

A 14-year-old girl - the sole survivor of a Yemeni jet that plunged into deep water - was reunited with her father back in France early on Thursday.

Bahia Bakari, who can barely swim, clung on to floating debris for more than 12 hours before search teams spotted her struggling in rough seas, Reuters reports.

Bahia Bakari was brought back to France on the plane carrying a government minister and other French officials. The Falcon-900 jet with medical facilities aboard arrived at Le Bourget airport just north of Paris shortly after 8 a.m.

An emergency ambulance drove up to the aircraft, and she was expected to be taken immediately to a hospital.

At the foot of the aircraft was her father, Kassim, as well as several other members of her family, The Associated Press reports.

Her father has described how his daughter was ejected from the plane into the Indian Ocean.

"She didn't feel a thing. She found herself in water," Paris-based Kassim Bakari told French radio RTL after speaking to his 13-year-old daughter Bahia who was recovering Wednesday in hospital in Moroni.

"She could hear people talking, but in the middle of the night she couldn't see a thing. She managed to hold on to a piece of something," said Bakari, whose wife was also on board the doomed flight and is presumed to be among the 152 victims.

"She said she was ejected from the plane," Bakari said.

Bahia, who lives in Marseille, escaped with just cuts to her face and a fractured collar-bone as the Yemenia Airways Airbus A310 tried to land at Moroni airport at the end of a four-stage flight from France, CNN reports.
