Around 8:30 p.m. Sunday emergency responders were called to the 7700 block of NC 218 East in New Salem in reference to a mother and her 14-month-old, Kaiden Lee-Welch, being swept away by swift moving water from Richardson Creek on N.C. 218.

The article goes on to state the following:

The mother was rescued from flood water, but rescuers had not found the child overnight.

“I couldn’t hold on anymore, and he let go,” Kaiden’s mother, Dazia Lee, told FOX 46.

Authorities said her vehicle left the roadway and came to rest amongst a group of trees. She managed to free herself and Kaiden, who was in a car seat, but lost her grip on him in the rushing water.
