A young girl survived a jet crash shortly after the aircraft lifted for takeoff from Annemasse in eastern France, about three miles from Geneva. The crash happened at a residential area in the French Alps, Reuters reports March 4.
Rescue firefighters found the young girl alive, but injured with multiple fractures. The other two passengers on-board the PRM1 twin-engined corporate jet were killed.
The plane reportedly began experiencing difficulty not long after takeoff. A state official said the jet first hit the roof of one house before crashing into the yard of a second house. No injuries were reported of anyone on the ground when the crash happened.
According to the Daily Mail, the girl who survived the jet crash is about 15 and she indicated that the pilot was her father.
Identities of those killed and of the injured girl have not been released. It's unclear what caused the crash, but the plane had problems once it got into the air.

Daily Mail reports that injuries the girl suffered are a fractured pelvis and aren't life-threatening.
