A hospital official says an Indiana toddler found in a field after Friday's violent tornadoes has died.
Fourteen-month-old Angel Babcock of New Pekin Ind., was found after her family's mobile home was destroyed in the storms that ravaged the Midwest and South.
She had been in critical condition at Kosair Children's Hospital in Louisville, Ky. Chief nursing officer Cis Gruebbel says she suffered head and neck injuries and her family decided to take her off life support.
Her father, mother and two siblings were killed in the storm.
Her grandfather, Jack Brough, says the family is thankful for the thoughts and prayers they have received and is looking to God.
The girl's death brings the overall toll from the storms to 39 across five states.
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.
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.
