Family Finds 4-month-old Baby In Tree After Tornado Rips Their Tennessee Home

The Moore family of Tennessee are profoundly grateful despite the destruction of their home due to a tornado, as their 4-month-old baby son was rescued after being swept out of his bedroom and onto a nearby tree.

Sydney Moore, aged 22, relayed to WSMV-TV that she and her partner attempted to save their infant while their mobile home was in the path of the tornado on Saturday.

At the time, Mrs. Moore had been with her other son, who is 1 year old, when she became aware of and felt the intensifying winds outside.

“Something in me just told me to run and jump on top of my son. Literally the moment I jumped on him, the walls collapsed,” Moore said.

“The roof came off first, the tip of the tornado came down and picked up the bassinet with my baby, Lord, in it,” she added. “He was the first thing to go up.”

Her boyfriend tried to hang on to the bassinet but it was caught in the winds of the tornado.

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

Moore expressed her devastation after the trailer collapsed on both herself and her child, yet she managed to dig out of the rubble. After an arduous search in the pouring rain for ten minutes, they eventually discovered him in a fallen tree; fear that the baby had perished was inevitable.

“I thought he was dead,” Moore said. “I was pretty sure he was dead and we weren’t going to find him. But he’s here, and that’s by the grace of God.”

The baby sustained a gash on its face and required medical attention, but was ultimately unharmed. Despite losing all their possessions in the tornado, Moore stated that the community has offered assistance to them. Additionally, a GoFundMe account has been established for the family, and it has already raised more than $25k.

“I will die for my kids. That’s not even a question,” said Moore. “And my boyfriend would do the same thing.”
