Mother, 2 children killed in Texas floods


ERATH COUNTY, Tex. (CNN) A mother and her two young children are dead, after their car was swept away in Texas.

First responders launched a rescue mission in Erath County Wednesday morning.

That’s after the floodwaters pushed the vehicle into a swollen creek.

They managed to rescue the father, who was found clinging to a tree.

But it was too late for the mother and two children, who were three and seven-years old.

Their remains were pulled out of the water several hours later – along with their submerged car.
