A North Carolina boy who was swept up by a tornado has miraculously survived his ordeal.

The boy, who’s whom was destroyed in Charlotte, was actually carried nearly 350 feet and dropped onto nearby Interstate 485, but he sustained only minor injuries! Jamal Stevens continues to recover in a nearby hospital, he was found a few moments after the twister tore the top story off their two story home.   Patricia Stevens, the boy’s mother, said she tried to shelter Jamal’s siblings in a bathtub, but was not able to get them there in time.  Jamal’s sister Ayanna was swept out into the yard by the twister, and other members buried under debris, but remarkably EVERY family member survived the twister.  Authorities are calling it literally, a miracle.
