The 14-month-old girl found in a field after Friday's tornadoes passed away after being taken off life
support on Sunday, her grandparents told NBC News.

The grandparents and doctors had earlier decided to
remove Angel Babcock from life support due to the
severity of her injuries.

Angel was found alive about 150 yards from where
her family's home had stood. Her parents, Joe and
Moriah Babcock, died instantly; so too did her brother Jaydon, 2 years, and sister Kendall, 2 months.


Her grandfather Jack Brough on Saturday told the
Louisville Courier-Journal that "she's had a lot of injuries to her head ... I'm just asking everyone to
pray for my granddaughter and for my family."

A neighbor said her boyfriend had tried to help
the family leave their mobile home in New Pekin,
Ind., for his larger one as the tornado bore down on

The boyfriend, Jason Miller, said he saw Angel's
family lying face down in their hallway, holding
hands and praying.

Before he could help them out, however, the tornado
sucked him and the Babcocks out. Miller survived
with several broken bones.

Brough said he waited out the storm at his home
and then headed to his daughter's to see how they

"As we got closer and closer, the whole area was flattened," he told the Courier-Journal. "I kept
saying, ‘Oh my God! Oh my God!' I was breathing so
hard. I couldn't see my daughter's trailer for nothing.
It was gone."

Brough was then told of a little boy found in a
field and a baby being carried away. He later
learned the two were his grandchildren and went to
a local hospital to identify them. There he was
told that his daughter and her boyfriend were
also dead.

"They wanted me to identify Moriah and Joe, but
I just couldn't do it," he said.

"She was always happy and loved life," Brough said
of his daughter. "Her entire life was about Joe
and her children. She loved her kids; she was
always with them."
