A four-month-old boy was found living in a tree in Tennessee, where he had been sucked up by a tornado from his family’s truck.

A terrible storm hit a couple’s home in Clarksville on December 9, BBC reported. It tore off the roof and lifted the bassinet that their son Lord was sleeping in.

Sydney Moore, 22, a mother of two, told WSMV-TV that her boyfriend, the child’s father, tried to grab the bassinet but was also picked up by the storm.

“He was just holding on to the bassinet the whole time, and they went into circles, he said, and then they got thrown,” said Moore.

As that was going on, Ms Moore held on to her one-year-old son Princeton as the walls started to fall down. The two of them were crushed under the caravan.

“I felt like I should run and jump on top of my son right now.” “The walls fell down as soon as I jumped on him,” she remembered, adding, “I was really being crushed.” I was having trouble breathing.

The mother and her son were able to get out of the rubble after the storm was over. For the next 10 minutes, she and her boyfriend desperately looked for Lord. In the end, they found him lying in a downed tree in the heavy rain.

“I thought he was dead,” Moore told the news source. “I was sure he was dead and we wouldn’t be able to find him.” But he’s here, and God’s love is with him.”

Moore’s two children and himself only got small cuts and bruises, but the father of two broke his arm and shoulder.

The damage was so bad that the young family lost everything. Caitlyn Moore, Moore’s sister, set up a GoFundMe page to help them get better.

“Their rental company is kind enough to put them up in a hotel for a month.” Their car was a total loss because they didn’t have insurance on it. Some of the things that the storm took were formula, diapers, wipes, clothes, and other things.

When the sister described her four-month-old nephew, she said, “he had to have his ear glued from a gash on his ear and had a minor concussion.” She also said, “he looked like he was placed on the tree gently,” as if “an angel guided him safely to that spot.”

“If anyone would like to reach out and offer prayers, donations, support, anything you can reach my sister on her Facebook page, SYDNEY MOORE,” she added. “With the funds raised, Sydney and her family would like to purchase a home, as you can imagine this has been extremely traumatising for everyone involved so they do not feel comfortable living in a caravan again.”

As of this writing, $95,380 has been raised, which is almost the full $100,000 goal. The family will use the money to buy a new house, furniture, a car, insurance, and everything else they need.

“I’m ready to die for my kids.” It’s not even a question. Moore said, “My boyfriend would do the same thing.”
