A 17-year-old boy who survived a plane crash that killed three members of his family was in critical condition Friday after spending a freezing night alone amid the wreckage, officials said.

The boy, identified as Timothy Frank Edmon of Lewisburg, W. Va., was taken by helicopter to the Oregon Health Sciences University Hospital in Portland, where he underwent surgery to repair broken bones in both legs and was treated for frostbite, said Dr. Donald Trunkey, chairman of the university's surgery department. Investigators were seeking the cause of the Wednesday crash.
