WELCOME To Plathville toddler Joshua Plath was the 10th addition to Barry and Kim’s family.
The Plaths were stricken with grief when Joshua suddenly passed away in a tragic accident.
What happened to Joshua Plath from Welcome To Plathville?
Joshua Plath was the 17-month old son of Barry and Kim Plath.
He suddenly passed away on the family property while Kim was doing yard work outside the home with the Suburban.
She recounted his death on their family website, saying: “I looked for our 17-month-old Joshua, saw that he was away from the vehicle, then pulled forward to get the next tree.
“In a panic, I realized what had happened. I ran over our Joshua.”
Kim then said she “lived the next hour nonstop in my brain for the next 8 months.”
She went on to explain that she leaned on her faith and Barry to get through Joshua’s death.
“God has been so faithful to our family for getting us through such a horrific event. He has indeed fully restored our joy. And we are forever grateful!” she wrote.
Joshua’s death was officially ruled an accident by the local sheriff’s office, according to the Thomasville Times-Enterprise.
