In some unfortunate news this morning, Manhattan advertising executive, Madonna Badger, 47, lost her parents and three children over the holidays to a deadly fire in Stamford, Connecticut.
STAMFORD, Conn. — A fire tore through the home of an advertising executive in a tony neighborhood along the Connecticut shoreline Sunday, killing her three children and both of her parents on Christmas morning.
Madonna Badger and a male acquaintance were able to escape from the house as it was engulfed by flames, said Stamford Police Sgt. Paul Guzda. But Badger’s three daughters – a 10-year-old and 7-year-old twins – perished in the fire, Guzda said.
He said Badger’s parents, who were visiting for the holiday, also died.
Neighbors awoke to the sound of screaming shortly before 5 a.m. and rushed outside to help, but they could only watch in horror as flames devoured the grand home in the pre-dawn darkness and the shocked, injured survivors were led away from the house.
I can’t imagine the heartache she’s feeling at the moment. What a horrible way to lose your family and at the worst possible time. May they rest in peace.
