Heart-wrenching video shows some of the American children injured in Monday’s deadly Mexican cartel shooting being treated at a local hospital.
A baby with a wound on his chest can be heard crying, as a Spanish-speaking man wearing a surgical face mask tends to him, according to footage posted Tuesday on Facebook.
On the same bed, a distraught-looking teenage girl in stained jeans sits wrapped in a blanket, a bandage around her foot. A blood-splattered younger boy is seen fast asleep under a blue towel on an another bed in the same room.
The devastating footage was posted by Dinorah Liddiard, who identified herself as the children’s aunt.
According to Liddiard, the baby, 9-month-old Brixon Oliver Langford, was shot in the chest and had a bullet graze his wrist in the shootout.
The older girl, 14-year-old Kylie Evelyn Langford, was shot in the foot, Liddiard said. Her 9-year-old sister Mckenzie Rayne Langford had a bullet graze her arm.
Other survivors include Devin Blake Langford, 13, who walked 14 miles to get help after witnessing his mother Dawna Langford, 43, and two of his brothers get gunned down.
Another baby, 7-month-old Faith Marie Johnson, was found in a car seat that her mother put on the floor during the shootout to protect her, Liddiard said.
Three other boys, Cody Greyson Langford, 8, Jake Ryder Langford, 6, and Xander Boe Langford, 4, also survived, she said.
The children were part of three families with dual US-Mexico citizenship and ties to Utah who are believed to have been caught in crossfire of two cartels in the border state of Sonora, near where they worshiped with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
The families lived in La Mora, a Mormon community about 70 miles south of Douglas, Arizona.
Kendra Lee Miller, a relative, identified the dead as Christina Marie Langford Johnson, 29, Dawna Langford, 43, Trevor Langford, 11, Rogan Langford, 2, Rhonita Maria Miller, 30, Howard Miller, 12, Krystal Miller, 10, and 8-month-old twins Titus and Tiana Miller.
