A woman has shared an emotional tribute of her sister's final messages before she died from being trapped in a car.
Anndel Taylor tragically passed away in the horrific Buffalo winter storm after she was stuck inside her car for around 18 hours, her family say.
The storm travelling across the US over the holiday weekend has killed at least 60 people in eight states.
Taylor’s sister Tomeshia shared a heartbreaking tribute to her late sibling.
The below video contains strong language and some readers may find it distressing.
"Stuck in a f**king blizzard," Anndel wrote to her elder sister in the family group chat.
Tomeshia explained: "She was driving home from work when she got stuck in her car at 3pm."
Anndel added in the group chat: "Son I'm still here been here since 3 the car I'm driving muffler damn near on the ground already then snow up the tires like I'm mad irritated.
"Yeah but it look like ima sleep here idk how ling this gas will last. I'm livid bro my door damn near covered."
She continued: "I've been in and our shovelling mike just called the fire department tho they sending a cop to me idk how long that's gunna take.
"I swing it open every now and then when the wind stop but just now it was mad hard for me to get it open but it opened no Mikey got stuck.
"Well she's connecting me to the fire department she still on the line they just not answering. All might be out. They said they're sending someone."
One sister asked her if the fire department 'made it' to her aid.
Anndel's said: "Noooo if they not here by 11:00 ima just gts."
She then sent a video of her horrid surroundings followed by her final message: "Look now smh that's my stomach line jst about."
"Are you OK? Y'all talked to Anndel" one sister asked, as another replied: "No smh and she not responding."
After tracking her phone, the family were able to verify her location.
"They found her body Dec. 24th at 9pm but did not remove her body from the car until Dec. 25th at 7pm," Tomeshia said.
Tomeshia told CNN: “We texted her in the group to ask, ‘Are you OK?’
“Maybe two hours later, my sister tracked her phone.
“She [Taylor] must’ve shared her location with my sister. And it showed that she was still outside.”
She added: “So I put the info on a private Facebook page called Buffalo Blizzard 2022 and asked for help.”
Later that evening, she got a phone call from an unnamed man.
“He let us know he checked her pulse and there was no pulse,” Brown said.
“I really didn’t believe it. It was like a piercing feeling in my stomach, a pain I’ve never felt before.”
