Life and Activities

Her friends remember Devy as being a sweet loving girl.



On August 27, 2017, Saldivar died after drowning in a white van while trying to escape the floods of Hurricane Harvey in Houston, Texas. Her family was trying to get to higher ground when the van they were traveling in hit high floodwaters after crossing a bridge on Green River Road in Greens Bayou.

The van was swept up in the current, and the driver was able to crawl out. He told the children inside to try and get out through the back door, but they were unable to. The van quickly sank with everyone inside.

The driver was able to hang onto a tree limb and escape.
