Family recounts harrowing stories of young survivors of Mexican highway ambush

Three women and six kids killed by suspected drug cartel on their way to a wedding in Mexico

Her auto seat had been placed on the floor of the vehicle, presumably moved by her mother for protection. Dawna, 43, and two of her sons - Devin's youthful brothers, Trevor, 11, and Rogan, 2½ - died as bullets tore by way of their automotive.

Dawna Ray Langford and her sons Trevor, 11, and Rogan, two, were killed in another auto while Christina Langford Johnson, 31, was killed in the third vehicle.

A 7-month-old baby was found alive and miraculously unharmed after her family was ambushed and attacked on their way to a wedding in Mexico.

"God is so good for sparing her life", LeBaron wrote.

Mendoza said the Miller auto appeared to have exploded because of the gunfire.

"After witnessing his mother and brothers being shot dead, Devin hid his six other siblings in the bushes and covered them with branches to keep them safe while he went for help", Kendra Lee Miller told the Associated Press. Five of those living kids sustained gunshot injuries, such as 9-month-old Brixon Langford, who had been shot in the torso, also 4-year-old Xander Langford, who had been shot at the back.

It took him six hours to walk the approximately 14 miles through mountainous terrain before he arrived back at the family's home around 5:30 p.m. and alerted his uncles, who armed themselves and tried to retrieve the injured children. They didn't get far earlier than realizing they'd be risking dying, since there had been continuous capturing for hours, all around the mountains close to LaMora. Her 9-year-old sister Mckenzie Rayne Langford had a bullet graze her arm.

Faith's grandmother posted about her emotional reunion with her father on Facebook.

"When we opened the passenger door, there was a vehicle seat there with a bullet hole through the canopy of the auto seat and two bullet holes through the bottom of the auto seat", said relative Julián LeBarón, who was the first to find Faith. They were eventually taken to a hospital in Tucson, according to Ms Johnson's cousin Leah Staddon, who lives in Arizona. Devin, his brother Jake and Christina Johnson's young daughter remained with their family in La Mora.

The federal Department of Security and Citizens' Protection said security forces were reinforced with National Guard, army and state police troops in the area following "the reports about disappearance and aggression against several people".

Officials believe the family, who was traveling in a caravan of SUVs, were mistaken for a rival gang by the cartel members, who are embroiled in a vicious turf war. "I think this transcends politics and country lines", Langford tells Fox News.

"They shot us up, burned our vehicles to send a smoke signal into the sky", Langford tells Reuters, alleging that the Juarez cartel's goal was to draw the Sinaloa gunmen into battle. On Thursday, authorities announced that the suspect was not connected to the ambush.
