Woman Sucked into Tornado While Recording, Husband Saved Her Life
She almost didn't get a chance to regret her decision. A woman in Arkansas was recording video while a violent tornado roared through Little Rock. Her video shows how she was sucked into the tornado, but her husband's quick thinking saved her life.
This is a remarkable story that I saw shared by Coast to Coast AM. It's a video shared by Inside Edition of Kimberly Shaw in Little Rock, Arkansas. She was documenting the killer twister as it roared near her place of business.
As her video rolled, the door was suddenly grabbed by the wind and the vortex began to pull her in. Fortunately, her husband Jimmy saw what was happening and he grabbed her arm. His hold was all that was keeping Kimberly from flying into the funnel.
The National Weather Service later rated this large wedge tornado as an EF-3 with winds topping 165 mph. 23 lives would be lost in this storm that would eventually bring damage to Missouri, Tennessee and Illinois.
Kimberly Shaw's video is now a teachable moment about how you seek shelter when dangerous storms like this approach. Her husband Jimmy had to get stitches for the deep gashes he suffered while holding onto his wife. Compelling storm video is never worth the price of your life or those you love.
