Oklahoma storms: 'My love, we're going to die'
Maria Pol Martin, 26, spoke those words to her husband Friday, seconds before the EF5 tornado pulled her and their newborn son from the family minivan along Interstate 40.
The mother and her 17-day-old baby, Rey Chicoj Pol, were among the eight victims of the tornado outbreak in central Oklahoma on Friday evening. At least 11 more people died because of flooding.
Her husband, Miguel Chicoj, and two other children, Juan Chicoj Pol, 5, and Tomasa Chicoj Pol, 1, were injured when the tornado tossed the white minivan into a field.
They landed upside down still buckled inside the crumpled minivan.
