Misidentified At Death

On April 26 there was a tragic accident in Grant County, Indiana. Ten members of Taylor University's student and staff were in a van when it collided with a truck. Five were killed.

In the days which followed, Whitney Cerak was buried by her family. And Laura VanRyn's family held vigil at her hospital bedside while she recovered.

But it turns out the two girls were misidentified.

The family of VanRyn, 22, disclosed the mix-up Wednesday on their blog. "Our hearts are aching as we have learned that the young woman we have been taking care of over the past five weeks has not been our dear Laura," but instead a fellow university student of hers, Whitney Cerak, they wrote.
