GREENWICH - Greenwich resident Janice Baker is home after spending seven hours on a grounded plane, trapped during last week's massive earthquake.

Baker was heading back to Connecticut from a business trip in China, when her layover flight in Tokyo was delayed by the earthquake, which hit 200 miles north of the airport.

The flight was delayed seven hours before taking off, and Baker says she is very thankful that she was able to get home.
