Two Babies Placed in Bathtub with Bible Survive after a Tornado Takes Them Away

A miracle happened in Kentucky when two toddlers escaped a tornado that pulled the bathtub they were in out of the ground and out of their grandmother’s arms, hurling it with the children.

Clara Lutz, the grandmother, revealed that she placed her grandsons, Kaden (15 months) and Dallas (3 months), in a bathtub with a pillow, a blanket, and a Bible. Soon later, their Hopkins County house started shaking.



The tub was elevated, as per Lutz, and she was unable to hold on to it. Moreover, the woman said that the bathtub’s water tank smacked her in the back of the head, prompting her to begin searching for the infants among the ruins.

In addition to the missing kids, the grandma’s house was completely destroyed. While Lutz continued her search for her grandchildren, she pleaded to God to return the infants unharmed.


Not long later, the woman’s request was fulfilled when the bathtub was found in her yard, upside down, with the babies still alive below. According to Sheriff’s Department Deputy Troy Blue, he just heard someone weeping or shouting from a distance.

Deputy Trent Arnold rescued the infants from beneath the tub as two cops elevated it. Deputies then came to Lutz’s driveway and reconnected her with her grandchildren.

The joyful granny described the meeting, saying, the sheriff arrived. She got into the sheriff’s cruiser at the end of her driveway, and they quickly unlocked the door and gave her Kaden, her 15-month-old. And they brought her Dallas, three-month-old baby.


Lutz stated that when she first saw Dallas, the back of his skull was seriously wounded, and they had no idea what was wrong.

Without a basement, Clara Lutz of Barnsley, Kentucky, sheltered her infant grandsons in the bathtub for safety. A powerful tornado pulled the tub from her grip and sent the babies flying.

The small child had to be transported to the hospital as he was bleeding from his head; fortunately, the bleeding stopped before they reached.

Deputy Arnold praised Lutz’s attempts to safeguard youngsters. He believes the woman’s efforts in arranging various objects around the children to protect them may have rescued them.

Lutz added that the tornado just missed the babies’ parents’ home in the county’s northwestern corner. Rather than taking credit for her attempts in preserving the children’s lives, the grandma praised God for sparing the lives of Kaden and Dallas.

She also didn’t mind her ruined flat because all that counted was that her grandkids were alive.
