Imagine a tornado striking when you least expect it and you have a baby to protect. Heather Town was in that situation and heroically gave her own life to protect her darling baby girl. Her daughter was found alive in her arms, still protected by her mom after hurdling through the air for hundreds of feet from her mobile home in Florida.
Who says there are no more heroes? Heather was trapped in her mobile home with her 3-year old daughter when a tornado sparked by Tropical Storm Debby hit her community in Highlands County, Florida. The tornado made a direct strike on the trailer in the small town of Venus, Florida, tearing it apart and throwing her hundred of feet through the air where she eventually landed on a barbed wire fence.
But first she did something that gives me goosebumps. She instinctively grabbed her daughter Anne Marie and held on for dear life. She died at the scene but her body cushioned the blow for her daughter. Rescue workers had to pry her arms away, and because of her motherly heroism a full recovery is expected at Tampa General Hospital despite broken ribs and a broken pelvis.
