Shivering toddler found clinging to mother's body in Houston floods

Shivering toddler found clinging to mother's body in Houston floods

According to reports, a witness told Capt. Brad Penisson of the fire-rescue department in Beaumont, Texas Jordyn's mother Colette Sulcer abandoned her vehicle which was located at flooded parking lot.

A witness saw her pull into a flooded parking lot, where her auto became stuck, and attempt to walk away with the child before they were overcome by a nearby overflowing drainage ditch, he said.

"First responders took turn performing CPR until they could get her to an ambulance", police said on Facebook. When they were pulled onto the boat, rescuers found the mother unresponsive.

According to police in Beaumont, Texas, two hours northeast of Houston, one Texas mother has died after trying to save her infant daughter amid the rushing waters.

The comments come a day after girl was discovered "clinging" to her dead mother's body as waters continued to rise. A good Samaritan nearby helped the rescue crew get the mother and child to a hospital by letting the crew load the pair into his truck.

Beaumont Police have since confirmed the deceased mother 'absolutely saving the child's life'. She parked her vehicle in an office parking lot just off Interstate 10. She is suffering from hypothermia.

Antionette Logan, a relative, told the New York Times that Jordyn said her mum was "saying her prayers".

Under normal circumstances, anyone with a prison sentence would not be granted a United Kingdom work visa for another five years. He has since protested his innocence and appealed, but the outcome is not yet known and complicated his switch to North London.

The name of the mother and child were being withheld Wednesday morning.

"Officers pulled the child and the mother into the boat".

The pair were caught by two firefighters and two police officers just before they were swept under a railway trestle.

"Had it been a few more minutes, they would have been swept underneath the bridge and our boat wouldn't have been able to get to them", Morrow added.

"She's doing well and she's with her family", officer Haley Morrow said.

There have been at least 18 people killed by Harvey since it made landfall Friday. And we were finally able to notify some family members and get them to the hospital.
