Last weekend, Devy, Dominic, Xavier and Daisy Saldivar were traveling with their great-grandparents Belia and Manuel Saldivar and their uncle, Manuel "Sammy" Saldivar, in the van.
The family had just made their way over a bridge when the vehicle was caught in the swollen bayou as Hurricane Harvey dumped record amounts of rainfall on the area.
Sammy Saldivar, who managed to escape from the van and cling to a tree branch until rescuers arrived, survived the ordeal. The van and the remains of six of its passengers were located Wednesday morning.
