VIRGINIA (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A 13-year-old New Jersey teen is fighting for his life after a tornado hit a campground, killing his parents and injuring two other siblings.

"I heard people say come help me. There was nothing that could be done for them."

Lord Balatban and his wife Lolibeth were in one tent when a tree fell on it.

Their children ages six, 11, and 13 were in another.

More than 1,300 people were in the campground when the storm hit, tossing vehicles and slicing campers in half.

A dozen people were also injured.

Officials have declared a county-wide emergency, as they help the injured and assess the damage.
