Four young siblings were swept from parents’ grip, among victims of Ky. flooding, relative says

Brittany Trejo said that her four young cousins, ranging in age from 1 1/2 to eight, were swept away from their parents’ grip in the deadly Kentucky flooding Thursday. By 12:30 p.m. Friday, the bodies of all four children had been recovered from the Knott County community of Montgomery, Trejo said.

Gov. Andy Beshear confirmed on Friday afternoon that the bodies of the four children had been recovered. According to the coroner, at least 14 deaths had been confirmed in Knott County by mid-day Friday. Trejo said that the home of Amber Smith and Riley Noble in the Montgomery community filled with water Thursday.

“They got on the roof and the entire underneath washed out with them and the children. They managed to get to a tree and ... held the children a few hours before a big tide came and wash them all away at the same time,” Trejo said. “The mother and father was stranded in the tree for 8 hours before anyone got there to help,” said Trejo.

Amber Smith and Riley Noble, the mother and father, were found alive. The bodies of Riley Jr., 6, and Nevaeh Noble , 4, were recovered, said Trejo. The bodies of Maddison Noble, 8, and Chance Noble, 1 1/2, were found Friday morning, she said.

CNN)Nathan Day was up early Thursday morning helping his son get ready for work when he received a message from a neighbor asking him to save her grandchildren from the rising floodwaters.

Day, a former coal miner who lives in Hindman, Knott County, said he was unaware of what was happening in the region until he received the message saying the children needed help getting out of their house.

"I didn't know what they was talking about, then I went outside," Day told CNN. "You heard a lot of people screaming and begging for anyone to help."
