A 7-year-old girl on life support after being rescued from a burning home in Southwest Philadelphia has died from her injuries, according to Fire Commissioner Lloyd Ayers.
Firefighters found Raquibah Jeffries in a second-floor bathroom on the 6500 block of Windsor Avenue about 5:40 a.m. Saturday. She and two other children injured in the incident were transported to the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
The Fire Department at 6 a.m. Sunday was notified that Raquibah was taken off life support. The other two children were treated and released, according to Ayers. Six people, including the three children, were inside the home when the fire began, Ayers said.
