Shivering Texas toddler found clinging to drowned mom in Harvey floodwaters

The rescuers detached the child from her mother's body and tried to revive the mother, but she did not respond.

A mother caught in Harvey's surging floodwaters in Beaumont, Texas, on Tuesday died while trying to escape with her young daughter.

She got out of the vehicle with her child, then at some point, they were swept into a canal, floating almost one-half mile from the vehicle.

"Two Beaumont Police Officers and two Beaumont Fire Rescue divers in a Zodiac boat spotted the mother floating with the small child", an official police statement read.

Authorities say the child was holding to her mother and was responsive, but suffering from hypothermia.

Penisson said the child was now in stable condition at Christus St. Elizabeth Hospital. But as she walked through the water with her child in her arms, a sudden powerful current from an overflowing drainage canal close to the parking lot swept them away.

"If people will just pay attention to what the authorities in the local communities are telling them". Rescuers were able to save the child, police said, but Sulcer never regained consciousness.

Beaumont police officials said the toddler was doing well and had been reunited with family. "Water was up to the trestle and first responders would not have been able to save the child if they had floated under it".

First responders performed CPR until they could get her to an ambulance. Beaumont police say the mother was unresponsive. "When the baby was found the baby was clinging to her".

On Tuesday, only hours after Sulcer was found dead, Riley told PEOPLE the devoted mother "absolutely saved the child's life".

The New York Times reported Wednesday that the death toll from the storm had risen to 30 confirmed and suspected flood-related deaths.

The two were among the latest in casualties - rising to at least 18 in Harris County on Tuesday - from the tropical storm wreaking havoc with torrential rainfall along the Texas coast. Hundreds of thousands of residents of Texas and Louisiana have been ordered to evacuate their homes.
