Yes, sad indeed, but the story is incorrect. There's a lot more to it, as reported from other sources.

Friday's crash that killed Austin's father, Dr. Stephen Hatch and his stepmother, Kim, was the second one Austin survived. A 2003 crash killed his mother and two siblings. His father was piloting both times.

Kline said everyone at the private Canterbury School, which has about 320 students, is stunned by the news of the deadly crash and praying that Austin survives. He said it's "unbelievable" the youngster is now the only survivor of his immediate family.

Ok now this is just creepy.

Research NTSB accident September 1, 2003 in Indiana.

This appears to be the one.

Accident occurred Monday, September 01, 2003 in Uniondale, IN
Probable Cause Approval Date: 01/24/2005
Aircraft: Beech B36TC, registration: N8018J
Injuries: 3 Fatal,1 Serious,1 Minor.

The National Transportation Safety Board determines the probable cause(s) of this accident as follows:
The pilot's inaccurate preflight planning which resulted in an inadequate fuel supply and subsequent fuel exhaustion. Factors associated with the accident were the low ceiling, dark night conditions, and the utility pole which the airplane contacted during the forced landing.
