Woman swept away in bathtub during tornado


Busick nearly lost her life. She was home alone in her Rice Road home when the tornado struck. She says she hid in a bathtub that was blown more than 75 yards from the house.

"I slammed down," Busick recalled. "My house was up in the air and spinning, but when I came out, I wasn't even in the bathtub anymore. I didn't even know that I was still alive, it was just devastating."

There's not much left of the home, but what little was left is a reminder of how lucky she is.

Busick's husband, Kevin, knows how close to death his wife could have been.

"When they showed me where she ended up, I just cried," Kevin said. "I thanked the Lord she's still with us. It was tough. I don't know how she made it, but she did."

The Busicks are starting over but they are thankful they have each other.
