Doehner and his parents, older brother and sister were returning from a vacation in Germany and planned to travel on the 804-foot-long Hindenburg to Lakehurst, then fly to Newark and board a train in nearby New York City to take them home to Mexico City, where Doehner's father was a pharmaceutical executive.The kids would have preferred the decks and public rooms of an ocean liner because space was tight on the airship, Doehner said in a rare telephone interview this week with the Associated Press from his home in Parachute, Colorado.Their mother brought games to keep the children busy. From there, the family was taken to Point Pleasant Hospital. Doehner had burns to his face, both hands and down his right leg from the knee. The family returned to Mexico City, where funerals were held for Doehner's father and sister, who were among the 35 fatalities of the 97 passengers and crew aboard the airship.It mixed with air, causing a fire.
