Tornado: Bicycle helmet saved son’s life

When Natalie Gonzalez and her family dove into the bathtub to protect themselves from the destructive power of the Joplin tornado the other day, she told her nine year old son Augie to put his bicycle helmet on. Gonzalez believes the helmet saved her son’s life when the toilet was ripped out of the floor and hit Augie in the head.
