LOUISVILLE, Ky. - (AP) - A hospital official says an Indiana toddler found in a field after Friday's violent tornadoes has died.

Fourteen-month-old Angel Babcock of New Pekin, Ind., was found after her family's mobile home was destroyed in the storms that ravaged the Midwest and South.

She had been in critical condition at Kosair Children's Hospital in Louisville, Ky. Chief nursing officer Cis Gruebbel says she suffered head and neck injuries and her family decided to take her off life support.

Her father, mother and two siblings were killed in the storm.

Her grandfather, Jack Brough, says the family is thankful for the thoughts and prayers they have received and is looking to God.

The girl's death brings the overall toll from the storms to 39 across five states.
