ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) -- An Oregon doctor said three family members injured in a plane crash in Anchorage, Alaska, were in stable condition and face long, painful recoveries.

Dr. Nick Eshraghi said Thursday that Preston Cavner, his wife, Stacie, and their 2-year-old son, Hudson, are under sedation and on respirators.

Thirty-four-year-old Preston Cavner and his 32-year-old wife, Stacie, are being treated at the burn center of Legacy Emmanuel Hospital in Portland. Their son, Hudson, is being treated at Legacy Emmanuel's children's hospital.

The couple's 4-year-old son, Miles, died when the Cessna 206 crashed and burned in a busy business district during rush hour Tuesday.
