Three children flying with their parents were killed Wednesday after the family's plane crashed into the frozen surface of Lake Clark in white-out conditions, broke through the ice and sank, officials said.

The accident occurred sometime before 1:30 p.m. about six miles north of Port Alsworth and involved a desperate attempt by the parents to save their kids and themselves. Jeremy Davis, 38, his wife, Michelle Davis, 31, and their three daughters, Samantha, 9, Jesse, 7, and Katerine, 6 - were from Port Alsworth, and many in the tiny community of 100 gathered at a church Wendesday night to pray about the tragic loss of the three girls.
