A vending machine saved this FedEx driver's life as a violent tornado ripped through everything else.
In what may be the first win for soda in a long time, a Louisiana FedEx driver used an outdoor soft drink vending machine to protect herself as a tornado obliterated the building she sought for shelter. ABC News has released intense security footage of the event. The driver, Kyra Johnson, escaped miraculously unharmed.
This is probably the best one yet. Kyra, you definitely had an angel looking over youPosted by David Sagona on Sunday, February 28, 2016
As you can see, the rest of the building did not fare as well as Johnson did, who "wedged herself between the outside of the wall of a local hardware store and a soda machine." She told ABC just how lucky she felt to survive, let alone escape without a single scratch.
I just said, ‘God what do I do, what do I do,’ so I grabbed onto the door and that's where I was standing until it finally stopped.
I could have been blown, ripped away...but nothing, nothing touched me. Thank God I'm here.
ABC's report also said the National Weather Service categorized the tornado as an EF3, meaning its wind speed clocked in between 135 and 165 miles per hour.
