Amish people scare me.

Four Amish children had died in Kentucky, after the horse-drawn buggy that they were riding in had overturned in a creek that was swollen by heavy rain.

The accident occurred on Thursday, after a family of nine were travelling in the torrential rain.

Authorities stated that the group were crossing a creek when the buggy had overturned in the water.

The dead children were aged under 12, and also included a five-month-old baby.
