Baby found alive in Indiana field after storms

Lillian C. Poole Elementary School is pictured after an overnight tornado passed through, Saturday, March 3, 2012, in Dallas, Ga. Massive thunderstorms, predicted by forecasters for days, threw off dozens of tornadoes as they raced Friday from the Gulf Coast to the Great Lakes. Twisters crushed blocks of homes, knocked out cellphones and landlines, ripped power lines from broken poles and tossed cars, school buses and tractor-trailers onto roads made impassable by debris.

Police say a baby girl found alone in an Indiana field after Friday's massive, tornado-spawning storms has been identified and remains in critical condition at a Kentucky hospital.

Kosair Children's Hospital spokesman Brian Rublein said Saturday that family members are at the hospital with her. He did not identify the girl is or say which family members are with her.

A spokeswoman for the hospital in Salem, Ind., where the girl was first taken, said Saturday that authorities were still trying to figure out how she ended up in the field alone.

St. Vincent Salem Hospital spokeswoman Melissa Richardson says the child's family is from New Pekin, Ind., and the girl was found in a field near her home.
