Share

A 4-month-old baby girl died during a July Fourth weekend boating outing on an Arizona lake likely due to heat exposure.

Phoenix NBC affiliate KPNX reported, the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the death of Tanna Rae Wroblewski, who had been on a boat with her family on Lake Havasu at the Arizona-California border.

The baby lost consciousness Friday evening.

The family performed CPR, and the baby was transported to Lake Havasu Regional Medical Center, according to the New York Post.

From there, Wroblewski was then airlifted to Phoenix Children’s Hospital where she was pronounced dead.

The medical examiner has not yet released an official cause of death, according to KPNX.

AccuWeather recorded the high temperature in Lake Havasu City on Friday was 120 degrees.

Wroblewski’s mother, Alyssa Wolf Wroblewski, wrote in a since deleted Facebook post on Sunday, “Tanna Rae, our real life angel became an angel in heaven We are beyond devastated, heartbroken, there are just no words.”

“I will never understand why you had to leave us, you were just too perfect. I love you endlessly and I will look for you everywhere angel,” she added.

In a second post on Monday, the mother wrote, “Explaining your loss to your sister has been tough. We don’t understand why you had to leave, how could she? She’s left out toys for you and made sure your favorites were all in the bassinet before bed the last couple nights.

“We are so heartbroken without you baby girl there are just no words. We love you and would give anything to have you here with us We love you forever Tanny.”

Arizona and southern California have been experiencing extremely high temperatures.

The New York Times reported that three hikers at the Grand Canyon have died during the last month, including one 50-year-old man on Sunday. Temperatures in the canyon can reach over 120 degrees.

The highest point of the canyon is approximately 9,100 feet, but at its floor where the Colorado River runs through, the elevation is about 1,200 feet.

“Heat can increase by 5.5 degrees with every 1,000 feet lost in elevation, and the park urges caution to all hikers during the hot months of May to September, according to the park’s hiking information,” the Times said.

The news outlet noted that the National Weather Service had issued an excessive heat warning for Grand Canyon for elevations below 4,000 feet during the July Fourth weekend.

In neighboring California, a motorcyclist died on Saturday in Death Valley National Park, where temperatures reached 128 degrees.

Another in the group was transported for advanced medical care for “severe heat illness” treatment.


A Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:

 

I heard a chilling comment the other day: “We don’t even know if an election will be held in 2024.” 

 

That wasn’t said by a conspiracy theorist or a doomsday prophet. No, former U.S. national security advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn said that to the founder of The Western Journal, Floyd Brown.

 

Gen. Flynn’s warning means that the 2024 election is the most important election for every single living American. If we lose this one to the wealthy elites who hate us, hate God, and hate what America stands for, we can only assume that 248 years of American history and the values we hold dear to our hearts may soon vanish.

 

The end game is here, and as Benjamin Franklin said, “We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.”

 

All of this means that without you, it’s over. We have the platform, the journalists, and the experience to fight back hard, but Big Tech is strangling us through advertising blacklists, shadow bans, and algorithms. Did you know that we’ve been blacklisted by 90% of advertisers? Without direct support from you, our readers, we can’t continue the fight.

 

Can we count on your support? It may not seem like much, but a Western Journal Membership can make all the difference in the world because when you support us directly, you cut Big Tech out of the picture. They lose control. 

 

A monthly Western Journal Membership costs less than one coffee and breakfast sandwich each month, and it gets you access to ALL of our content — news, commentary, and premium articles. You’ll experience a radically reduced number of ads, and most importantly you will be vitally supporting the fight for America’s soul in 2024.

 

We are literally counting on you because without our members, The Western Journal would cease to exist. Will you join us in the fight? 

 

Sincerely,

Josh Manning

Deputy Managing Editor
