We'll have a look at the deadly Airbus crash early Wednesday at the Tripoli airport in Libya, in which all 103 passengers and grew members perished — and a single, 10-year-old Dutch boy survived. The child found among the twisted wreckage of Afriqiyah Airways 771. He broke both legs, but is now in stable condition with good vital signs after successful surgery, as you can see in the video below. He has not been identified beyond his age and citizenship.  Terrorism was quickly out, but it is not clear what caused the plane from Johannesburg to crash at landing. It is believed there 62 Dutch passengers on the plane. It is unclear whether there any Americans onboard, but U.S officials tells ABC News that given what they know now, it's unlikely. The flight boxes have been recovered. Conditions for the flight, which was continuing onto London Gatwick, were clear at the time. Much more tonight.
