    KETCHIKAN, Alaska (AP) — The only survivor of a floatplane crash in southeast Alaska that killed three Wrangell men remains in recovery at a Colorado hospital.

    The Ketchikan Daily News reports that Morgan Enright was left in critical condition after suffering extensive injuries in the April 8 crash on Admiralty Island.

    The Ketchikan resident had received treatment at a Seattle hospital before becoming a patient at Craig Hospital in Colorado, which specializes in neuro-rehabilitation and research for people with spinal cord and brain injuries.

    Enright's family has been documenting her recovery in an online journal since the incident.

    A May 14 journal entry says Enright would be in a wheelchair until her right ankle and leg are healed. The latest entry posted Wednesday says Enright is continuing physical, occupational and speech therapy.
