Toddler found after storm hurt, alone in Indiana field dies

The 14-month Indiana toddler who was found hurt and alone in a southern Indiana field after violent storms ravaged the area died Sunday evening at the Kosair Children’s Hospital in Louisville, Kentucky, WDRB reported.

Angel Babcock, the sole survivor of her immediate family, died of traumatic brain injury she suffered when a tornado demolished her family’s home in New Pekin, Ind., the report said.

The toddler was discovered in Salem, Ind., following Friday's string of deadly tornadoes, The Courier-Journal reported.

The storms claimed the lives of the toddler's mother Moriah Brough, 20, father Joseph Babcock, 21, two-month-old sister Kendall Babcock and two-year-old brother Jaydon Babcock, the newspaper reported.

She had been in critical condition at Kosair Children's Hospital. Chief nursing officer Cis Gruebbel made the announcement about her death.

Her grandfather, Jack Brough, had told the Courier-Journal of Louisville earlier that she had suffered head injuries and that the weekend was a critical time for her.

The girl's death brings the overall toll from the storms to 39 across five states.
