BOISE -- Three of the four people injured in a deadly plane crash in Alaska Tuesday are in stable, but critical condition at the Oregon Burn Center in Portland.

In a news conference Thursday, Burn Surgeon Nick Eshragi said Stacie Cavner, who grew up in Cascade, has the largest burns -- covering about 50 percent of her body.

Eshragi said he expects that she will have to spend at least two to three months in the hospital, and undergo inpatient rehab.

Cavner's husband suffered burns to 15 percent of his body, mostly on his legs. He also has a combination of a facial fracture and non-life threatening spine fractures.

The couple's 2-year old son, Hudson, has a very deep burn to his scalp, and a deep burn to his hand and foot.

Eshragi saidthat all three are doing considerably well considering their injuries. He also said that they all have extensive injuries that will take time and multiple surgeries to heal.

If there is anything positive to say, I'm happy to see the majority of the passengers on this plane survived the crash, he said.

The 16-year old girl, who was also on the plane when it crashed, was taken to the Burn Center at Harborview inSeattle.

She remains in serious condition.

The Cavner's 5-year old son, Myles,died in the plane crash.

Stacie Cavner's brother Julian told NewsChannel 7 Wednesday that Myles was probably more towards the rear of the plane, and the people who came to the rescue, weren't able to get him out before the plane was fully engulfed.

A National Transportation Safety Board investigator said it is too early to say what caused the crash.

The aircraft went down about a mile away from the airport in Anchorage, Alaska after its departure.

An account has been set up at SterlingSavings Bank for Stacie andPreston Cavner to raise money to help cover costs associated with their recovery.
