EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) — A toddler who was caught in a flooded Texas home with her grandmother has died from her injuries, according to an official with Operation Hope.

On Thursday, a 65-year-old woman drowned in her Central El Paso home after a living room wall in the home collapsed. Rainwater flooded the residence in the 3200 block of Nashville, pinning the grandmother and her grandchild.
