Melanie Coffee’s infant child Wyatt was dying. She had called for help, and a police officer had been trying to talk her through resuscitation, but it wasn’t working. Beside her, three other people lay dead or dying as well in the small turboprop plane, lost in snow and fog cold enough to freeze on contact after the crash in remote Alaska.

All that was left to her was to find some help before everyone else died too. So she left her five-month-old child behind to trudge toward a red blinking light and what might pass for hope a mile away in the darkness.

I don't think she had to leave to regret losing her child. She is a hero regardless and that night will affect her for the rest of her life.
