A young mother asleep with her 3-year-old daughter as her 10-year-old nephew were among the 18 victims that lost their lives in the mudslides that rocked California.

Other victims included a 22-year-old woman who died in the arms of her brother as he frantically tried to save her after their father was swept to his death by the fast-moving river of mud.

“My sister was such a good person, she only thought of others to the point that she would cry with you when you were hurt or sick,” Jennifer Ramos said between sobs as she spoke by phone from her home in Mexico.
