Newly bought $1.2 million dollar home of Madonna Badger, the advertising executive who survived the blaze but lost her three children and parents on Christmas day. The mayor of Stamford could only say this was the worst Christmas in the history of the iconic city.
Tragedy is the story in Stamford, Connecticut, today after local advertising executive Madonna Badger lost her 3 children and two parents who were visiting her lovely home for Christmas.
Rescue workers initially arrived to the home and were beaten back at first by massive flames but did manage to rescue Madonna Badger and an unknown man, a male acquaintance who some sources are now identifying as a staff personnel assigned to restore the Victorian home.
The home which overlooks the Connecticut shoreline caught ablaze near 5am, causing neighbors to rush outside to see what was the source of chaos and screaming in the typically quiet, upscale neighborhood.
Sgt. Paul Guzda reports that the three children who died in the blaze were all daughters of Badger, a 10-year-old and twin 7-year-olds. Madonna Badger and her acquaintance were able to escape from the fire.
The parents of Badger were also caught in the blaze and announced as dead today.
Neighbors describe the scene as that of ‘horror’. Some neighbors stated they could only watch and felt helpless as horror unfolded in front of them, the flames quickly eating up the home and screams coming from all around.
Badger is the founder of New York based Badger and Winters group, as well as an ad executive within the fashion industry.
Badger’s husband was driven from New York back to the home after the tragedy. The condition of Madonna Badger and her male acquaintance is generally unknown but they have summarily been discharged from a local hospital, presumably in acceptable physical condition.
This tragedy is terribly sad and we wish peace and extend prayers to the Badger family and their friends during this time. There is no current word on where gifts and memorial funds can be sent and will be established.
