Facebook members petition ‘Extreme Makeover’ to rebuild Buffalo plane crash house

More than 60,000 people have signed a Facebook petition pleading with ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition to restore the home of a
grieving mother and daughter whose Buffalo, N.Y., house was flattened by the
Continental Airlines commuter plane that crashed on Feb. 14, leaving 49 dead.

Karen Wielinski and her daughter Jill fled the house
after Flight 3407 hit, but her husband, Douglas, was among those killed in the
disaster. Jayne O’Connor, 17, a senior at Buffalo Academy of the Sacred Heart,
started a Facebook group to publicize the petition and it has received much
support. An executive producer of 
Extreme Makeover
 would say only that the
petition was being considered.

I’d say this goes in the category of “Duh.” Of course, yes, EM should jump at this opportunity. Go here to see the Facebook page. See the story on ABC News.
