LOUISVILLE, Ky., March 4 (UPI) -- A baby girl thrown from her Indiana home by a tornado last week died Sunday afternoon after being taken off life support, a coroner said.

Angel Babcock was transferred to a Louisville, Ky., hospital this weekend and was being treated for traumatic brain injuries suffered when the storm destroyed her family's home, killing her parents and two siblings. Due to the severity of her injuries, her grandparents decided to remove her from life support. A coroner said she died at 4:10 p.m. Sunday, ABC News reported.

Angel's grandfather issued a statement:

"Angel has been reunited with her parents. We want to thank God for all of you and for your thoughts and prayers. God will bring you and all of us out of this. That is what it will take. All should look to God. The family would also like to thank all the wonderful staff and doctors at Kosair Children's Hospital who have taken such kind care of Angel."

The 14-month-old girl was found in a field in Washington County shortly after the twister blew through Friday.

The girl's mother, Moriah Brough, 20; father, Joseph Babcock, 21; and siblings, Jaydon, 2, and Kendall, 2 months, all died Friday, authorities said.
