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.

    I agree with some of the posters, does it matter if the children were Amish or not?? No! Children are children no matter what nationality, race, creed etc. If the Amish want to live that way who cares? RIP innocent little kids 🙁 I hope they find the other one that is missing. And to the "give the Amish the world" comment, most of the peaceful tribes of the Native Americans were trying to do that from the start and now look @ their homes....why should the Amish have their lands and not the NAs? Think about that...

    May these children find peace, and may the parents be comforted by the lord.

    The difference between the Amish and the Native Americans is that they were not given their land, they bought it, and have passed down their homestead from generation to generation. They work their own farms to grow everything they eat, and try to interact with the "English" as little as possible. They harm no one, they are a peaceful people, and there is no crime. They do have strict guidelines towards behavior, but there punishment is non-violent. Because they eschew modern conveniences, you make fun of them...but they normally fly under the radar because they want to stay that way. They don't need us, they don't want us, so let's give them their wish and leave them alone.

    One more thing: they were caught in a flash-flood. As they don't believe in modern conveniences, they weren't tuning into The Weather Channel. They'll never see these comments; they don't care about them. They will turn to the Lord and be comforted; the way they always have when tragedy has befallen them. And their simple life will go on.

    You didn't need a weather ch to figure out something was wrong! Its called sirens.. Rain wind.. A flash flood comes with lil or no warning...all they wanted to do was get home, and if you read correctly it was a creek, not a river.. Something they pass over I'm sure every trip.. Get caught in a storm and see where you run to!! Chidren died and a family is hurting we were not there! Everybody is so quick to judge!! Its disgusting how ignorant some of you are!
