A 2-year-old New Pekin, Indiana toddler, whose name remains unidentified, shockingly survived last week's deadly twisters that hit states in the Midwest.
The little girl survived the twister that hit southern Indiana on Friday but sadly her mother, father, 2-month-old sister and 3-year-old brother all died. She was found near her home just hours after the twister came through.
The toddler is in critical condition at Kosair Children's Hospital in Louisville, Kentucky.
As reported by the NY Post:
A hospital spokeswoman says a 2-year-old girl found alive in an Indiana field after violent storms is the sole survivor of her immediate family.
Cis Gruebbel is a spokeswoman for Kosair Children's Hospital in Louisville, Ky. She said Saturday that the girl's mother, father, 2-month-old sister and 3-year-old brother all died Friday when the storms devastated southern Indiana.
Gruebbel says the toddler is in critical condition.
She would not identify the child and says she could not provide details on the child's ordeal. She says extended family members are at the hospital with the child.
A truck stands amongst storm damage near New Pekin, Ind., Friday.
Melissa Richardson, a spokeswoman for the hospital in Salem, Ind. where the child was first taken, said the child's family is from New Pekin, Ind., and she was found near her home.
Our hopes and prayers are with the little girl.
