  • Again so,so,so very tragic. Hope the kids are recovering .

    • Little Aubrey passed away Wednesday. Three of the other Wood family children have had broken bones. The mother is in an induced coma. She lost the baby boy that was 8 months along in her pregnancy. They need lots of prayer and compassion. They will have huge medical bills. the helicopter ambulance services are usually tens of thousands of dollars by itself. In our area of South Carolina they start at $45,000 just to fly locally. They are in several hospitals.

    • I understand the injured children that survived the wreck have been released from the hospital and are with family. They will need much prayer and support.

  • RIP, and may the daughter and husband have the best possible outcome.
