This happened less than an hour from where I live.  I cried like a baby last night when I read what happened.

MILTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A trip to a local cemetery to pay tribute
to family turned into a painful nightmare for a family from Milton.

Lydia Peyton, who'll be 2 years old next month, was crushed when a family member's tombstone toppled. Her mother, Brooke Moore, says Lydia's brother stumbled. When he did, the tombstone came down and pinned Lydia underneath. It happened at a cemetery in eastern Cabell County.

Lydia's in Children's Hospital in Columbus with kidney, liver and spinal damage.

There is a Facebook page dedicated to Lydia and prayer requests for her recovery.

"Lydia's a fighter," Moore says. "I'm just so grateful for all the prayers. Keep them coming. Those prayers have been invaluable to our family."

To learn more about Lydia's condition and accident, you'll find a link to the Facebook page under the Featured Links here at WSAZ.com. The Featured Links are listed under the Find It tab on our homepage.
