Bizarre, devastating/happy news story

I'm somewhat obsessed with this news story. I couldn't even sum it up, so I recommend you read it yourself.

Oh damn, sorry. Okay the gist is there was a horrible car wreck and five of the 6 college students on some field trip died. Apparently they misidentified the surviving student, and a deceased student's family took care of her for 5 weeks before they figured out it wasn't their daughter. So it's happy for the family who thought their daughter was dead because she's alive. But how sad is it for the family that thought their daughter was alive and actually she was buried in a grave with someone else's name on it? And the other awful part is poor Whitney who woke up from her coma a few days before they figured it out. Apparently they would call her Laura and she would say "Whitney" and they still didn't figure it out. Eventually a nurse asked her to write down her name and she wrote Whitney Cerak and they finally figured it out. But it must have been so scary in the meantime. She obviously had been in some horrible accident, her family wasn't there, the people there were insisting she was someone else, she tried to communicate to them and they didn't get it, etc.
