HOPKINS COUNTY, Ky. (WKRC/WFIE/CNN Newsource) - A grandmother in Kentucky was reunited with her two infant grandchildren after the recent tornadoes hit.
Clara Lutz watches her 15-month-old and three-month-old grandchildren every weekend she can.
On Friday night, when a tornado was just miles from her home, she did everything she could to protect them.
She placed them in the bathtub, with blankets, pillows, and a bible.
"I felt the rumbling, I felt the shaking of the house," said Lutz. "Next thing I knew, the tub had lifted and it was out of my hands. I couldn't hold on."
The bathtub was ripped out of the floor, with the two babies inside.
With the darkness from the tornado, Lutz feared they were gone.
"I was looking everywhere to see where the tub may be," she said. "I had no clue at all where these babies was. All I could say was 'Lord, please bring my babies back to me safely. Please, I beg thee.'"
Her entire house was stripped down to the foundation.
In the chaos, the water tank from the tub hit her in the back of the head.
Still, she went outside and searched for anyone who could help.
And in her yard, she found the bathtub upside down on the grass.
Sheriff's deputies found it, and underneath, the babies.
"The sheriff came down. I got in the sheriff's car down at the end of my driveway. They opened up the door and brought me Kaden, my 15-month-old. And they brought me my three-month-old baby, Dallas. They brought him to me. He had a big old goose egg on the back of his head, we didn't know what was wrong," said Lutz.
They soon found out that Dallas' brain was bleeding.
He was taken to the hospital, but before he even arrived, the bleeding stopped.
Lutz credits God for saving the lives of her grandchildren.
