Talk about a true miracle.
It was a crazy weekend in Middle Tennessee, with tornadoes ripping across Nashville and the surrounding areas this weekend, killing six people, injuring many more, and displacing hundreds.
But one Clarksville, Tennessee, family is counting their blessings after their four-month-old infant miraculously avoided being sucked up by the storm.
When the hurricane hit their neighborhood, Sydney Moore and her family lost their home. She claims that as she heard the tornado approaching, she leaped on top of her one-year-old kid to protect him:
“Something told me to run and jump on top of my son.” The walls literally shattered the minute I jumped on him.”
Lord, her four-month-old baby, was in his bassinet in the main room. When the tornado ripped the roof off their mobile home, the baby and his bed were destroyed:
“First, the roof came off, and the tornado’s tip came down and picked up the bassinet with my baby, Lord, in it.” “He was the first to go up.”
Moore claims that her partner attempted to apprehend their son but was also blown away:
“He was just holding on to the bassinet the whole time, and they went into circles, he said, and then they got thrown.”
Moore was able to push her way out of the destroyed home after the tornado passed, and she proceeded in search of her kid. They ultimately discovered him: alive, lying on a downed tree in the pouring rain.
“It resembled a small tree cradle.” He was simply lying there.”
According to a GoFundMe page set up for the family, the baby sustained minor bruises and had to have his ear fixed from a cut, but he “looked like he was gently placed on the tree,” as if “an angel had guided him safely to that spot.”
The family is presently staying in a motel for the next month, but they must now rebuild after losing everything.
But, thankfully, they’re all safe, which is nothing short of a miracle.
