Pastor’s daughter dies after being trapped under snow

Two girls, one 12 and the other nine, were buried under a heap of snow after a snow fort collapsed on them outside of a Chicago church, killing the 12-year-old.
Over the weekend, Chicago was hit by a snowstorm that left several inches of snow on the ground.
According to Faithwire, 12-year-old Esther Jung, the daughter of the Rothem Church pastor where the girls were found, went outside during a church service Sunday morning to play in the snow with her friend. An hour after going outside, the girls’ parents noticed that their daughters had not yet come in from the cold and began to worry. Together, the parents decided to go outside to look for their children.
