Heartbreaking Human Interest Story of the Day: A 2-year-old baby girl found alive but critically injured in an Indiana corn field following yesterday’s devastating tornado outbreak is the sole surviving member of her immediate family.
The child was found in a corn field near her home in New Pekin. She was taken to a hospital in Salem before being transferred to a hospital in Louisville, Kentucky, where she is currently listed in critical condition.
A spokeswoman for Kosair Children’s Hospital said the girl’s parents and two young siblings perished during the storm. Her extended family is currently with her at the hospital.
Officials provided no further details, but neighbors said the girl’s family was last seen holding hands and praying on the floor in the hallway of their mobile home.
Resident Jason Miller reportedly attempted to move the family to his larger mobile home, but it was too late.
Miller’s girlfriend Beverly Lanham told the Louisville Courier-Journal her boyfriend was picked up by the tornado along with his neighbors, and tossed across a nearby road.
The 31-year-old survived — the family, save for one member, did not. 
Yesterday’s tornado outbreak — potentially the worst March outbreak in recorded US history — has claimed the lives of at least 38 people across five states, and injured hundreds of others.

Kosair is a great hospital. They took the best care of our little Ayden and I know they will take care of her. This breaks my heart. I don’t know if I’m just still really emotionally fragile right now or what, but I just want to go to the hospital and adopt her.
this whole thing is so horrible. These are my neighbors. And it certainly could have been us.
