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 (PEEK'-in), 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 made the announcement about her death.

Her grandfather, Jack Brough, had told the Courier-Journal of Louisville earlier that she had suffered head injuries and that the weekend was a critical time for her.

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