Two Children Hurt in Flooding from SeMo Reservoir Break Relased from Hospital

DECEMBER 19, 2005 - Posted at 8:11 a.m. CST

 

ST. LOUIS, MO - Two Missouri children whose home was hit by the flood surge from a reservoir break were released from a hospital.

Three-year-old Tara Toops and her seven-month-old brother Tucker were discharged yesterday from the Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital in St. Louis.

A hospital spokesman says the third child, five-year-old Tanner, remains in critical condition in the hospital.

The injured youngsters are children of state park superintendent Jerry Toops and his wife, Lisa.

Their home in Lesterville was ripped from its foundation Wednesday after a section of wall around a mountaintop reservoir broke and unleashed a torrent of water.

About one billion gallons of water rushed through the breach, but the Toops home was one of the few structures affected.
