As Hurricane Tears through House, They Huddle in Shower and Say ‘Goodbye’ to Triplet Babies

Those living in the path of destruction of Hurricane Irma had many concerns. What would happen to their homes?

Would they have access to water, food, and power after the storm? Mainly, would they survive?

A British couple shared all of these concerns plus another that was much more unique. Kate Jackson, 33, and her fiancé Alex Ashman, 31, had infant triplets to protect.

The couple lived on the British Virgin Islands with their three daughters. Beatrice, Charlotte, and Isabella were between 5 and 6 months old at the time.

Kate’s mother had a home on the largest of the islands, Tortola, so they decided to stay there during the storm. Christine Jackson, Kate’s sister, stayed with them.

Nick Cunha and his wife, Jayne Gray, were friends who sought shelter in the Tortola home, too. Kate and Ashman could use all the help they could get when Hurricane Irma tore through the area.

Everybody huddled together in a tiny bathroom. The terror in the room rose as various parts of the house were being destroyed by the hurricane.

They all crammed into the shower while the balcony, kitchen, and then the rest of the house crumbled. The three women each held one of the triplets.

The two men, Ashman and Cunha, held a headboard over them. The roof above them was torn off by the strong winds.

The bathroom walls surrounding them were caving in. Cunha opened the bathroom door to see if there was a way the group to get to a solid concrete generator room.

The door blew open revealing that there was no more house. The bathroom had been recently constructed and was the only remaining room still standing.

Cunha told The Sun, “It was a slow-motion moment. That was like staring at God.”

They were coming to the realization that they might not make it, so they started to say goodbye to each other. The thought of the couple saying goodbye to their triplets as they hid in the shower is heartbreaking.

A window was found that the group was able to climb through to reach the generator room. The hurricane tore apart their homes, but did not tear apart this group as they all miraculously survived — including the triplets.

Pay-Back !!! Pedophile Who Assaulted Nearly 200 Kids Stabbed To Death In Prison

A convicted pedophile who abused almost 200 children was stabbed to death in North Yorkshire, England, on Sunday.

Richard Huckle, 33, from Ashford, Kent, was given 22 life sentences in 2016 after he admitted to sexually abusing 71 kids whose ages ranged from six months to 12 years between 2006 and 2014, according to the BBC.

The report said Huckle was attacked with a makeshift knife while inside his cell at the Full Sutton Prison.

At the pedophile’s trial in 2016, investigators said they found over 20,000 indecent photos and videos of his assaults, which were shared with other pedophiles via a site on the dark web called The Love Zone.

Reports said that prior to his arrest, Huckle posed as an English teacher and Christian volunteer worker in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where he groomed impoverished children.

In one of his online posts, Huckle reportedly wrote “Impoverished kids are definitely much easier to seduce than middle-class Western kids.”

Reports said he attempted to make money from his crimes by crowdfunding the release of the photos.

“Huckle also created a 60-page ‘how-to’ guide for other pedophiles seeking to evade being caught, and kept a scorecard and points system regarding the children who were abused — leading investigators to speculate he may have as many as 200 victims,” a Fox News report stated.

At his sentencing in 2016, Judge Peter Rook condemned Huckle for his heinous crimes he said had become routine for the pedophile.

Rook commented:

Your offending behavior became entrenched in your everyday life. Your life revolved around your sexual activities with young children. Your distorted beliefs in respect of children are deep-seated. Your self-delusion knows no bounds. It is also clear that, had you not been arrested, you planned to continue the same lifestyle using the expertise that you were keen to show off to and share with other abusers so as to continue your sexual exploitation of the children of such communities.

Reports said prior to his death, Huckle refused to cooperate with authorities when they tried to unlock a cache of encrypted files he had access to that may contain the names of victims and other pedophiles, according to Fox News.
