Flight 255 Crash-Survivor

Cecelia Crocker, the lone survivor of a 1987 plane crash near Detroit Metropolitan Airport that killed 156 people, shows an airplane tattoo on her left wrist in a September 2011 photo provided by Sole Survivor Film. Crocker, then Cichan, was 4 years old when Northwest Airlines Flight 255 crashed in Romulus. Crocker, now 30, breaks her silence in the new documentary, "Sole Survivor," discussing how the crash of the Phoenix-bound jetliner has affected her. "I got this tattoo as a reminder of where I've come from. I see it as -- so many scars were put on my body against my will -- and I decided to put this on my body for myself," she says in the film.
