With all the tragic stories of devastation in so many southern states, during the past week, it was comforting to finally hear a bit of good news. Early reports claimed a rescue had occurred in a small town outside of Birmingham, Alabama. Mark Kelly, a spokesman for Jefferson County Emergency Management Agency even allegedly told Reuters that, “Three people had been trapped in a basement in Concord, Alabama, and were rescued at 3:15 p.m. today”.
Unfortunately, soon after this report, CNN confirmed that the story was false. A person on the ground was interviewed, and said he also thought it was true, but dug deeper to find it was a “miscommunication”.
The tornadoes in the Southern states have claimed the lives of over 300 people and is said to be the second largest round of tornadoes in U.S. history. Many residents have provided news stations with devastating stories, which made this amazing that a miracle was being reported. Too bad it was not true, I am sure they need something to boost their spirits.
Let’s hope they can rebuild and recover from this tragedy.
