Naylor carried Grace, wrapped in a blanket, while he prayed to Jesus to save her. He placed her in a vehicle and then went to rescue others, although he is not a rescue worker. He owns a flooring business, according to his Facebook page.

Grace was taken to the hospital and treated for broken bones and internal injuries, but is expected to live. Nick Naylor searched and pulled several victims and survivors from the flattened homes in the neighborhood. When asked about the most memorable experience of all of the rescues, Naylor responded that “Grace’s eyes” were the most memorable.

Other folks were saved by taking refuge in a bathtub while one lady, who made her own tornado shelter, did not survive, according to CBS evening news. This weather is expected to move on to the Carolinas through Wednesday, according to NOAA's National Weather Service.
