Woman Who Lost 4 Family Members in WA Mudslide: ‘I Don’t Even Know If They’ll Recover Bodies’
A woman who lost four family members in the Washington mudslide was on “Shepard Smith Reporting” this afternoon.
Nichole Webb Rivera said both her parents, her daughter and her daughter’s fiancé are missing following the mudslide that has likely killed at least 24. Many are still unaccounted for.
Given the extent of the damage she has seen, Webb Rivera said, “I am at the point where I don’t even know if they’ll recover bodies.”
She said this is not the view of everyone in her family, but said, “I would think it’d be as likely to find them alive as aliens landing tomorrow.”
Webb Rivera is a quilter and says the quilting community has come together to help her cover the cost of burying her family. Now, she said she is raising enough money to help others bury their loved ones.
Webb Rivera said she’s doing all she can to help in honor of her dad, “who had the biggest heart and was all about people helping people.”
