An 11-year-old girl is the sole survivor of a small-plane crash on Lake Michigan that killed her real estate agent father and two others on Saturday. The last act of Mike Perdue, the 11-year-old’s father, was to protect his daughter as the twin-engine Britten-Norman plane went down, the girl’s mother said.
