Mystery Girl’s Entire Family Killed by Tornado

Most of us in Louisville heard the news yesterday about a 2-year old little girl who was found alone in the middle of a field after yesterday’s deadly tornadoes. No one knew who she was or where her family was until today, and it’s not good news. Here’s the report:

A blonde, blue-eyed 2-year-old girl found alive in a field after tornadoes swept through southern Indiana is the sole survivor of her immediate family, a hospital official said Saturday.

The child — at first unidentified – was taken to a hospital in Salem before being airlifted to Kosair Children’s Hospital in Louisville, Ky.

Cis Gruebbel, a spokeswoman for Kosair Children’s Hospital in Louisville, Ky., said the girl’s mother, father, 2-month-old sister and 3-year-old brother all died Friday. Gruebbel says the toddler is in critical condition.

I don’t think I have anything to say about this heart-breaking story except that this little girl needs our prayers. Read the rest here.

Psalm 146:9 “The LORD protects the strangers; He supports the fatherless and the widow.”

    Praying for this little girl and for the rest of those affected by the tornadoes. Thanks, Dr. Burk, for sharing this information so we know how to pray specifically for those affected.
