The storms marched through the Southern United States recently spawned a number of tornandoes . . . but rarely has been one caught like this tearing through a hospital. More on the story from WOAI:
Surveillance video captured a tornado in Americus, Georgia as it approached and swept through a hospital. Power lines arched, and eventually wind, rain and debris rushed past cameras inside the hospital's hallways.
"The building was shaking and everything was rattling everything in the room. And I just prayed man. I called on the Lord, and God kept us and protected us," said Michael Coley, who was inside the hospital when the tornado hit.
Coley protected his family as the storm rushed into his daughter Yolanda's room.
"We kind of hovered over each other in the corner, as you can see where the bathroom was. That's the only thing that protected us, was the corner there. Because everything in that room started, I mean the window, glass and everything was flying," Coley said.
A patient at the hospital had a real 'close call.' During the tornado, a 2x4 board flew into the room from somewhere else in the neighborhood was left protruding from the wall right over the hospital bed.
