    A 4-year-old Mandan girl in need of a double-lung transplant has landed in Houston with her parents thanks to private donors.

    Danica Stockwell is unable to fly commercial because of her lung disease and weakened immune system and needed to be evaluated at Texas Children's Hospital in Houston before she can be placed on its transplant waiting list.

    The cost of a medical flight ranges from $13,000 to $21,000 one-way. The nonprofit organization, Aero Angel, stepped in and secured a private jet for Danica and her parents.

    The Bismarck Tribune said the family departed Bismarck Municipal Airport for Houston Sunday afternoon.
