Angel Babcock, the 15-month-old Indiana toddler found in a field after a Tornado ravaged her small town, has died.
Babcock died at 4:10 p.m. of a traumatic brain injury she suffered when the tornado ripped through her family’s New Pekin, Ind., home, according to Deputy Coroner R.D. Jones of the Jefferson County Coroner’s Office.
She was pronounced dead at Kosair Children’s Hospital in Louisville.
Jack Brough, Babcock grandfather, told the Courier Journal:
“We didn’t want her to suffer anymore. It was time for her to be with her parents and her brother and sister.”
Angel was found in critical condition in a field Friday near her New Pekin home, the sole survivor of a tornado that ripped through the house and killed her entire family.
On Saturday, officials acknowledged the deaths of Angel’s parents, Joseph Babcock, 21; and Moriah Brough, 20; and her siblings, Jaydon Babcock, 2, and Kendall Babcock 2 months.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the victims who were affected by the tornados that have caused so much damage in the Midwest.
