The tornadoes that relentlessly pursued Midwestern and southern towns all weekend during a massive storm changed the lives and took the lives of nearly 40 people. One infant lost her entire family and was found alive in a field in Indiana. Later, she would also succumb to her injuries. But, one little boy was fortunate and survived the twister.
According to Reuters, seven-year-old Jamal Stevens of North Carolina was thrown 350 feet from his home onto an interstate embankment receiving minor injuries and he lives to tell the tale. He was at his grandmother’s house with his three other siblings and his mother when the tornado came to their community.
The grandmother, Patricia Stevens, said that she had never seen anything like that. She told reporters:
“I’ve never seen or heard anything like that,” said Patricia Stevens, recalling the moment the twister “sucked out the walls” of the house in the darkness. “It was a terrible sound. I never want to go through that again. I don’t want anyone to ever go through that again.”
