Baby Snoozes Through Tornado and Found Unharmed, Cradled on Fallen Branches



Quick Smiles:

  • A 4-month-old baby, named Lord, gets swept up in a tornado from his mobile home and is later found unscathed, snoozing in a makeshift ‘cradle’ of fallen tree branches.
  • Despite the destruction of their home and car, the family finds hope in the miracle of their baby’s survival.
  • A GoFundMe campaign, set up to aid the family’s recovery, has already raised $68,000 towards their $100,000 goal.

Sydney Moore experienced a mother’s worst nightmare when her 4-month-old son, Lord, was swept up into a tornado. As she watched the bassinet carrying her baby ascend into the funnel cloud, she was certain she would never see him again.

In the midst of the chaos, Sydney shielded her 1-year-old boy with her own body as the walls of their mobile home collapsed around them. Outside, their car was reduced to rubble and the area surrounding their Clarksville, Tennessee home was left in ruins.

After surviving the collapse, Sydney and her boyfriend, who had been injured by the tornado, began a frantic search for baby Lord.

“I thought he was dead,” Sydney confessed to WSMV, her voice heavy with the weight of the memory. “I thought he was dead and I’d never see him again.”

But then, something amazing happened. Sydney found Lord, with just a minor cut, sleeping peacefully in the crook of a fallen tree.

“It was like a little tree cradle,” she recalled.

Sydney’s sister, Caitlin, couldn’t help but think that it seemed as if an angel had guided the little one through the storm.


In the aftermath of the disaster, Caitlin set up a GoFundMe campaign to help the family recover. The goal? To raise $100,000 to replace their home, car, furniture, and most of their belongings. The response has been overwhelming, with generous donors already contributing $68,000.

So, go ahead and share this true miracle with your friends on social media. It’s a testament to the power of hope, resilience, and the kindness of strangers.
