Heartbreaking Picture Shows Siblings Reunited After Surviving Crash That Killed Parents

They say a picture tells a thousand words and this cuts pretty deep.

A brother and sister who barely survived a car crash three weeks ago have been reunited after a head-on collision that killed their parents and younger sister.

The photo shows Zachary, five, and Angela, eight, holding hands in a hospital bed at Cook Children's Medical Center in Fort Worth, Texas.

Their parents - Jim, 31, and Karisa, 29 - and two-month-old sister, Juliana Clemens, were killed on April 7 after a driver hit the family's car.

This really does pull at the heartstrings.

According to family members, Zachary was able to leave his bed for the first time to see his older sister.

Karisa's aunt, Teresa Burrell, told KTXS: "It's really devastating."

She added: "Little Zachary broke his back, but could feel his toes and that's awesome. But when they took him in for surgery his lungs, they really struggled."

Brother, Nicholas Clemens, two, is now being cared for by his grandmother, while the other sibling, Wyatt Clemens, four, is still being treated, according to KTXS.

GoSanAngelo reported that the five children were in the car with their parents coming back from a family outing at the time of the crash.
