An 18-year-old pilot, who was set to compete in a Mississippi pageant later this month, died when she crashed on a golf course, officials said Sunday.
Lake Little, the daughter of Starkville, Miss., Alderman David Little and his wife Pattie, succumbed late Saturday to her injuries from the 3:15 p.m. crash on the Ole Miss Golf Course, University of Mississippi spokesman Rod Guajardo said Sunday.
The article goes on to state the following:
The teenager, who dreamed of becoming a professional pilot, was practicing takeoffs and landings in a single-engine plane at the nearby University-Oxford Airport when she crashed near the course’s 17th tee box, The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reported.
She was the only person on board and suffered serious burns in the crash, Guajardo said.
Such sad news about Lake Little. A beautiful light has passed from this world far too soon. Deborah and I pray the dear Lord would assuage the pain and grief of her parents and family. https://t.co/iP2xJkSdns

To describe the plane crash today in Oxford as tragic seems hollow and lacking. Offering a prayer for peace and God’s healing grace tonight for the Little family, for Lake’s friends and for the young men and first responders who did all they could to try to save her life.

@lake_little was my first cousin and an amazing person. This world didn’t get to experience her true potential. Heaven gained an angel, but we lost a true difference maker. Someone that loved people and made everyone feel special. Please pray for the Little family.
