3 children dead, 1 missing after being swept away in Kentucky creek

The bodies of three of four children who were swept away in a creek swollen by storm waters were recovered early Friday morning, authorities in Kentucky said.

The children were traveling with their family in a horse-drawn carriage on a flooded street in Graves County when the carriage flipped over Thursday evening, said Jerry Beasley, a Kentucky State Police spokesman.

    Ignorance runs rampant again. One can yell by the posts those who truly care for their fellow people. Hope most of you don't own dogs you probably kick them too.

    Hey Amish people! Try getting your kids some Stearns® Puddle Jumpers™ or some kind of life-jacket arm tube deal. To all you idiots out there praying for them... What exactly does that do???

    I was on the phone with my daughter in TN you don't see a flash flood coming, and when your in the middle of a tornado warning you want to rush for safety. This has nothing to do with being Amish it could have happen to a family in a van.. And it has happen, I'm embarrassed that I have to share this country with you fools! Lives were lost tonight it was very scarey to be caught in this storm! Why don't all of you haters go stand under a tree in a lighting storm!!

      They need weather radios. Can't play it too safe with mother nature especially when you have babies to protect. That squall line ran through the south and they would have known not o leave several hours before it hit. It was no pop-up storm.

    Wow. Wake up, check CNN's blogs, and I read these comments.. I'm goin' back to bed, seems I've already gotten my daily dose of stupidity and ignorance. My thoughts are w the children. May their souls be at peace and may the 4th be found alive.
