In an update on the condition of the sextuplets born last week in Minneapolis, hospital officials told the Associated Press that three of the children have died.
Unfortunately, three of the boys Tryg, Bennet, and Lincoln have already passed away. The surviving children, two girls and a boy, remain in critical condition as of Sunday evening.
The parents, Brianna and Ryan Morrison, released a statement saying it has been "a difficult week" for them, and that they thanked everyone for their prayers and support.
"We continue to trust in the Lord and are hopeful for a good outcome for Cadence, Lucia and Sylas," the statement said
The four boys and two girls were born last Sunday about 4½ months early at a Minneapolis hospital. Doctors had encouraged the couple to abort all but two of their children, but they refused.
