DEER PARK, Alabama — Three people died and three others were critically injured in this rural Washington County community during Friday night's severe storms when a tornado lifted a double-wide mobile home several feet into the air and slammed it into an oak tree 100 yards away.
Those killed were Jean Box and two of her children, Sheldon, 14, and Hunter, 11. The survivors were Greg Box, Jean's husband, and the couple's eldest daughter, Taylor, 17. A friend of Taylor's who was staying at the house, Shelby, 17, also was critically injured.
All three remained in critical condition at University of South Alabama Medical Center on Saturday afternoon.
