Miracle: Baby survives tornado in Dunn, NC

The South was torn apart by tornadoes this weekend.  But my home state of North Carolina was hit the hardest and suffered the most damage and casualties.   We were lucky and had nothing more than heavy rain fall.

I heard this amazing story yesterday and couldn't help but share. I'm not sure if there is some deeper meaning but it did make me think about how miraculous event occur.

Jonathan Robinson could feel the wind from inside his trailer in Dunn, N.C. One of the 62 tornadoes reported in North Carolina over the weekend was headed his way.

He did what came naturally: the 21-year-old picked his cousin's three-month-old baby and ran to a closet. What happened next is simply harrowing. Hear Jonathan tell the story himself:

The force of the winds tore apart the trailer around him and ripped the baby out of his arms. Next thing Robinson knew he was digging out of the rubble.

More than 20 people died because of the storms on Saturday.

By some miracle, perhaps, Ayden, the three-month-old, survived. Robinson heard him cry and found that he was dusty and dirty, but without a scratch on him.
