The last thing that Jonathan Robinson expected when he offered to keep his 3 month old cousin Aydan was that a tornado would rip through his mobile home. But that was exactly what happened in the deadly storm that hit North Carolina.
Jonathan lives in Dunn North Carolina and when the tornado hit he quickly made for the bedroom closet with his 3 month old cousin Aydan. He placed his body over the baby’s as the wind ripped the back half of his trailer off and flung it away.
However as hard as Jonathan fought to hold onto baby Aydan the wind ripped the infant from his arms and swept him away with the storm. When 5 minutes later the tornado was gone it left Jonathan frantic and expecting the worst.
He dug his way out of the rubble and started hunting for baby Aydan finally hearing a baby crying. That is when he found that the baby had been dropped on a pile of wood. He was alive and unhurt.
After checking him out at the local hospital the 3 month old was released to his family’s waiting arms with only minor bruises.
When asked what he would call what happened to Aydan Jonathan didn’t have an answer. A relative beside him did. She said it was a miracle.
In the devastating aftermath of these storms, as North Carolina struggles to rebuild, this is a story that gives them the hope and the courage to move on. Baby Aydan is an inspiration to everyone in these trying times.
