"Keep my family in your prayers, please. We lost five children in a tragic accident. I don't know what to do or how to handle it. God, please help us."
Nicole Cross lives in New York State, USA. She has just lost five children from her family in a tragic car accident and calls on God for help.
"Lord Jesus I don't understand why you had to take our babies from us, please give us strength Lord God, these children did not deserve this. Why is this happening please "Keep my family in your prayers, please. We lost five children in a tragic accident. I don't know what to do or how to handle it. God, please help us."
The accident took place overnight from Saturday to Sunday. The car, which was carrying the six siblings and cousins, veered off the road, hit a tree and burst into flames. Westchester County Executive George Latimer explains the circumstances of the crash.
"The driver did not turn along the carriageway, continued in a straight line...hit a rock and then hit a tree. And the car was engulfed in flames at that point."
The five victims are between the ages of 8 and 16. The eldest cousin was driving, without a licence. At this stage of the investigation, and while toxicology reports are awaited, investigators believe he was distracted or dozed off. The 9-year-old sixth cousin managed to get out the back of the car. Injured without gravity, he is the only survivor.
