Where to find legal assistance after a Lubbock injury accident

Texas Tornado: Infant, toddler rescued from submerged truck (VIDEO)

Go to this link to watch this incredible rescue. This is really hard to watch.

First things first: apparently everyone survived, and the baby and toddler are currently stabilized and recovering in the hospital, but that will not be super helpful to your stress level while/immediately after viewing. If you are currently the mother of young children, have a drink ready or your chosen method of self-care for when the video is done, because you will need it.
