N.C. Child Dies From Storm-Related Injuries, Bringing State's Death Toll to 22

BONNETSVILLE, N.C. -- A fourth child from a Raleigh mobile home has died from storm-related injuries, bringing North Carolina's death toll to 22.

Six-month-old Yaire Quistian-Nino had been in the hospital. Raleigh police confirmed her death Tuesday. Yaire's 9-year-old brother Daniel Quistian-Nino was also killed in the home along with two cousins, 8-year-old Osvaldo Coronado-Nino and 3-year-old Kevin Uriel Coronado-Nino.

Family spokesman Hector Velazco declined to comment, saying the family will speak at a memorial service to be held Wednesday night.

Authorities have said that Yaire's mother moved all the kids into a closet when the storm came in but that a large tree fell on the home. Police have said the mother was momentarily knocked unconscious but survived.
