The Bohemian

As the storm ripped through Joplin, Scott, Natalie and son Augie huddled in the bathtub protected by a mattress and a bike helmet they hoped would shield Augie from injury. The twister lifted Scott in the air and debris struck Augie in the head, shattering his helmet. In an instant of calm, Natalie realized they were in the eye of storm and hurried them to take cover in a ditch before the second wave of wind swept over them. Only dating before that day, the couple decided to marry and are eager to start their new life together.
