In an unimaginable tragedy, one couple lost all their young children in the deadly Kentucky floods. The victims were Maddison Noble, 8, Riley Jr., 6, Nevaeh Noble, 4, and Chance Noble, 2. Parents Amber Smith and Riley Noble had only minutes to escape with their children when their mobile home began flooding. Sadly, the children lost their parents' grip and their bodies were found hours later in Knott County, the Lexington Herald Reader reported.

According to a family relative, Smith's cousin Brittany Trejo, the parents "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 were stranded in the tree for 8 hours before anyone got there to help,” added Trejo.
