"They just started hitting [the] car first, like with a bunch, a bunch of bullets. Just start shooting rapidly at us," he said. "The car didn't work. So she was just trying right there, starting the car as much as she could, but I'm pretty sure they shot something so the car wouldn't even start." "Afterward, they got us out of the car, and they just got us on the floor and then they drove off," he added.

Bryce Langford, the second oldest of her children, said he felt helpless when he heard about the ambush. He was in North Dakota at the time, more than 1,500 miles away. Even before hearing any news on whether his family was OK, he got in his truck and began driving, praying to God to protect the family.

“God didn’t answer my prayers that day. He took my mother and my two little brothers,” he said.

But the fact that seven of his other siblings survived that day is truly a miracle, he said. 

“And I will always be grateful to God for that,” he added.

Four of his surviving siblings attended the funeral service, including two girls who had been transported to Tucson's Banner University Medical Center for treatment after the attack. The girls were released from the hospital Wednesday and were able to travel to Mexico with their father. 

Three of Dawna Langford’s youngest children continue to recover at UMC from wounds they sustained in the ambush. Xander, 4, was shot in the back, while 4-month-old Brixton was shot in the chest. Both are in stable condition and "are doing well," one relative said.

They were ambushed by gunmen in Sonora, Mexico. Their 8-year-old brother, Cody, was shot in the jaw and leg. He underwent surgery on Wednesday and is expected to have several other procedures to reconstruct his jaw, according to the family.

Crystal Langford, 17, the fourth oldest of the 13 siblings, described the guilt she felt because her mother initially did not want her to move from La Mora to Utah. If she had stayed, she could have been there for her brothers and sisters following Monday's attack, she said. 

“Now I know that it’s all in God’s plan, and he has a bigger plan for me,” she said. “So I could be there for his seven little survivors, and I could help raise them like my momma would.”

All three will be buried in La Mora following Thursday’s services.

A total of nine people — three women and six children — were killed in the ambush as they traveled near the Sonora-Chihuahua border where cartels have been fighting a turf war.

Rumble — Funerals are being held on Thursday after a deadly ambush led to the deaths of three women and six children. More children were injured and taken to a Tucson hospital.

The victims , who had dual US- Mexican citizenship, were "all shot while in vehicles while driving," family member Alex LeBaron told CNN on Tuesday. Investigators believe criminal groups ambushed the vehicles, traveling between the Mexican states of Sonora and Chihuahua, Mexican authorities said.

The second funeral service for Rhonita Miller, 30, and her four children is set to begin later on Thursday at their home a few houses from Langford’s.

Miller had been traveling in her car with her four children: Howard, 12, Krystal, 10, 8-month-old twins Titus and Tiana. They were shot and their vehicle exploded during the ambush.

The Miller family said they will transport their remains, after the service, to neighboring Chihuahua to be buried.

Sonora Gov. Claudia Pavlovich made a brief appearance at the first funeral service. She arrived by helicopter at about 9 a.m. and spent time with the family.  Before leaving, she talked about the help her government is providing the families involved in Monday’s ambush, including mental health support for the survivors.

“After such a loss like this one, I think the best support I can provide is that we bring them justice, working jointly with all levels of government, of course, given the brutality and cowardice of this crime," Pavlovich said.

On Friday, a third funeral will take place in Colonia LeBaron in Chihuahua for Christina Johnson, 32.

Johnson was traveling in a third SUV with her baby when she was killed. The baby was found unharmed about 12 hours later after relatives launched a search after learning of the attacks from two of the older children who walked more than 10 miles back to La Mora, relatives said.

Indian court gives disputed religious site to Hindus

  Indian court gives disputed religious site to Hindus India's Supreme Court ruled on Saturday in favor of a Hindu group in a long-running battle over a centuries-old religious site also claimed by Muslims, in a verdict that could raise tension between the two communities. The ruling paves the way for the construction of a Hindu temple on the site in the northern town of Ayodhya, a proposal long supported by Prime Minister Narenrda Modi's ruling Hindu-nationalist party.The five-judge bench, headed by the Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi, delivered a unanimous judgment, opting to hand over the plot of just 2.77 acres (1.

All three families belonged to a fundamentalist offshoot of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and had dual U.S. and Mexican citizenship.

The three families were traveling in three separate vehicles from their homes in La Mora in Sonora to Colonia LeBaron in Chihuahua when they were ambushed in two separate attacks by gunmen hidden in the mountains, Mexican authorities said.

Some relatives have said the families were on their way to a wedding. Others have posted messages on Facebook that said two of the mothers were on their way to visit relatives in LeBaron and the third mother was on her way to pick up her husband at the airport in Tucson.

Mexican authorities have said the gunmen might have mistaken the group’s large SUVs for those of a rival gang amid a vicious turf war. Criminal investigators in northern Mexico on Wednesday said they arrested a suspect in connection with the deaths. 

Eight children survived the attack by hiding or running away, and at least five of them were treated for their injuries in Arizona. All are in stable condition, and two girls were released on Wednesday from Banner University Medical Center in Tucson.

Most of the victims lived about 70 miles south of Douglas, Arizona, in the hamlet La Mora. Relatives traveled from the United States back to La Mora on Wednesday evening, accompanied by heavily armed escorts from the Mexican military. A checkpoint was set up outside La Mora that night.
