Child saved in tornado reunited with rescuer

Five-years ago this weekend a tornado plowed through Millington Township, Michigan and a baby who was saved from that twister just reunited with his rescuer.

In 2007, 14-month-old Blake Kelly was ripped from his crib by the tornado.

His neighbor, Jeff Hawks, heard his mother screaming for her baby so Hawks ran outside into the darkness searching for the baby.

He scoured three acres and found little Blake under a pile of debris. Luckily Blake only had a few scratches.

The now 6-year-old was reunited with his hero.
