Desperate measures save child from tornado

On April 8, 1998, a tornado destroyed a mobile home near Coal City, Ala. The clothes dryer was found about 250 yards from the home with a 3-year-old girl in it, the National Weather Service reported.

Her parents apparently put her in the dryer so that she would survive – and she was not hurt. The same could not be said for her parents, unfortunately.
