Plane Crash Survivor Returns to SB

Francesca “Frankie” Lewis-the only survivor of the 12/23/07 Panama plane crash that killed Santa Barbara businessman Michael Klein and his daughter, Talia-has returned to Santa Barbara. The girl’s health has been reported as stable, though she hasn’t yet returned to Crane Country Day School, which resumed on 1/7, and where students can discuss the death of Talia Klein with grief counselors.
