She had been the lone survivor of her family. Her mother, father, two year old brother, and two month old sister were all killed when their trailer home was demolished by the tornado.

A family friend found Angel in a field about 100-yards from her home.

The National Weather Service said the tornado that struck New Pekin, IN measured an EF-3 on the enhanced Fujita scale, while another tornado that struck nearby Henryville, IN,  was estimated EF-4 and packed winds of 175 mph

The baby girl is one of nearly 40-people killed in last Friday’s tornadoes which raced from the Great Lakes to the Gulf of Mexico.
