Baby Who Survived Mexican Drug Cartel Massacre Reunited with Father: ‘She Is a Living Angel’

Baby Faith was originally thought to have also been killed in the ambush after the bullet-ridden body of Faith's mom, Christina Langford Johnson, was found. But Langford's heroic actions saved her infant daughter.


The father of baby Faith has been reunited Tuesday with his “precious” little girl after his wife died saving her during the Mexican cartel massacre.

Faith was one of several survivors from the massacre on “Monday when a cartel ambushed a convoy of cars packed with three women and 14 children,” Fox reports.

A photo of the heartwarming and miraculous reunion between baby Faith and her father, Tyler, was shared by Faith’s grandmother, Connie LeBaron. “My son Tyler reunited with his baby Faith just now. God is so good for sparing her life—she is a living angel and has brought hope to our family,” LeBaron commented.

Little Faith was originally thought to have also been killed in the ambush after the bullet-ridden body of Faith’s mom, Christina Marie Langford Johnson, 29, “was found about 15 meters (50 feet) from a Suburban near the Sonora-Chihuahua border,” The Sun reports.

“Christina was gunned down after stashing her baby on the vehicle’s floor and leaving the SUV, waving her arms to show the gunmen she wasn’t a threat.”

However, hours after Christina was gunned down, relatives discovered baby Faith, “unscathed and still strapped to her car seat inside the bullet-ridden SUV.”

“More than 200 bullets were fired during the execution of three mothers and six children, who were traveling in three vehicles that may have been mistaken for a rival cartel,” The Mirror reports. Facts that make baby Faith’s miraculous survival and reunion with her father all the more profound.
