Watch video: How was Anndel Taylor trapped in Buffalo blizzard? Cause of Death Explained

A 23-year-old woman Anndel Taylor who became trapped while driving in the “blizzard of the century” sent a terrifying final video to her family before her death. Let’s see more details about the incident and her cause of death.

What happened to Anndel Taylor?

A 22-year-old woman killed in the monster snowstorm that pounded upstate New York sent the terrifying video to her family while she was trapped in her car for at least 18 hours before she was found dead. Anndel Taylor became one of at least 28 killed in what Gov. Kathy Hochul has called “the blizzard of the century” after getting trapped while driving home from work in Buffalo on Friday afternoon.

Trapped in for 18 Hours-Watch video

She was trapped in the car for 18 hours. During those terrifying hours, the 22-year-old told her family members she was “scared” and sent two chilling videos capturing the extreme blizzard blowing around her.
The first video, sent to her family group chat at around 4.15 pm ET on Friday, shows the windshields of her car completely covered in snow.

Just after midnight on Christmas Eve, she transmitted a second video in which she dropped her window just enough to see the deep snow and blizzard conditions outside. Shawnequa Brown, Taylor’s sister, said to WCOS that Taylor “was telling my sister that she was terrified.”

The family, who are headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina, lost touch with her at some point after that.

What did her Mother say?

Her mother Wanda Brown Steele told the local outlet that her daughter had called 911 and was waiting for emergency services to respond. Taylor instead intended to sleep through the storm and then make her way home on foot after it passed since they were unable to find her in the hazardous conditions.

Ms. Steele believes her daughter died from carbon monoxide poisoning after snow blocked the exhaust pipe. Taylor’s other sister Tomeshia Brown voiced her frustration that first responders were unable to reach her before it was too late.

How did she die?

The 22-year-old was one of 28 people murdered by the inclement weather in the western metropolis of New York State today. She was discovered dead inside her automobile hours later.

According to Taylor’s family, neither they nor the 22-year-old were aware of the level of danger she was in. We didn’t watch the news, so we weren’t aware of what was happening in Buffalo. “I don’t know if any of us recognized how terrible it was,” Ms. Brown added.

Cause of Death

Anndel remained trapped inside the car for around 18 hours while Winter Storm Elliot raged on all around her, her family said.

While her cause of death is yet to be confirmed, Ms. Steele believes her daughter died from carbon monoxide poisoning after snow blocked the exhaust pipe.

“She was in a position where she was comfortable inside the car when they found her body,” said Tomeshia.

Launched a GoFundMe to help with Memorial

“I feel like everybody that tried to get to her got stuck. The fire department, police, everybody got stuck,” she said. “Why didn’t they have chains on their tires? This is a state that is known for snow.”

Taylor had only moved back to New York this year to care for her father after she moved to Charlotte with her family at the age of two. Now, her family is left to spend the rest of the holidays without her, with the 22-year-old’s presents still waiting for her under the tree. They have launched a GoFundMe to help with memorial expenses.

Official Warning by the Government

New York Governor Kathy Hochul described the area as “a war zone” with officials warning the death toll could climb higher as people and cars remain stranded.
President Joe Biden has now approved an emergency declaration and authorized FEMA to send in resources to help the state.

While Buffalo has been hardest hit by the extreme weather wrought by Storm Elliot, a total of 56 deaths have also been confirmed across the country.
