One of the most remarkable stories to emerge from the deadly Kentucky tornadoes earlier this month is the survival of two babies who were in a bathtub that was ripped out of their grandma’s bathroom and caught up in the twister.
Clara Lutz was watching her grandchildren on Dec. 10, when she began scrambling to protect Kaden, who is 15-months old, and Dallas, who is 3-month-old.
Lutz grabbed pillows, blankets, and her Bible, and placed the children inside her bathtub in an effort to protect them, WKRC-TV reported.
Then, the unthinkable happened: the tornado hit and tore her home down to the foundation, sending the bathtub — and her grandchildren — into the air.
“I felt the rumbling, I felt the shaking of the house,” Lutz told the outlet, breaking into tears as she explained. “Next thing I knew, the tub had lifted and it was out of my hands. I couldn’t hold on.”
The grandmother, who couldn’t find the babies, clung to faith amid fear and begged God to protect them, as she desperately searched for the bathtub.
“I had no clue at all where these babies was,” Lutz said. “All I could say was, ‘Lord, please bring my babies back to me safely. Please, I beg thee.'”
Police found the bathtub upside down in her yard, and when they turned it over, they found the babies.
Dallas had some brain bleeding that quickly subsided; other than that, the boys are reportedly fine.
Lutz is thanking God — and giving him all the glory — for the babies’ survival, WKRC-TV reported.
