Victims of tornado that shattered Kansas in May number 12

Another victim of the tornado that destroyed Kansas town in May has died.

Max M. McColm, 77, of Liberal was staying with his daughter, Beverly Volz, while recovering from shoulder surgery when the tornado hit on May 4.

McColm's grandson, Ross McColm, of Lakewood, Colorado, said his grandfather was hit in the head with a large piece of metal. He fell into a coma and was taken to a Wichita hospital. At the end of June, he was moved to a long-term acute care center in Overland Park.

He regained partial consciousness in mid-July and was told his daughter had died, said his son, Matthew McColm, also of Lakewood, Colorado. Max McColm died on Wednesday, his family said.

Matthew McColm said his family appreciated the support it had received from Liberal residents and his father's neighbors.
