Usually I find it kinda depressing when you hear about an elderly person making a wrong turn and driving hundreds of miles in the wrong direction. Not this time. This time it actually SAVED two grandparents' LIVES.
Thomas and Claudia Foutch of Moore, Oklahoma are grandparents who are both in their 80s. On Monday, they were headed home from a funeral . . . just before that devastating tornado completely ravaged the town.
BUT . . . as they were driving home, they took a WRONG TURN. They got confused, and ended up 200 MILES south, in Texas. And that probably ended up SAVING THEIR LIVES.
They eventually figured out they were lost, but couldn't get back to Moore because of the road blocks. They didn't have cell phones. They didn't know their family members' phone numbers. They didn't have enough money for a hotel.
So they ended up spending almost 48 hours in their truck until they found their way back home. Their family didn't know what had happened to them . . . and even went on "Piers Morgan Live" to ask for help finding them.
Their granddaughter says now that she's been reunited with her grandparents, her first move was to get them cell phones.
God Bless them both and please continue praying for the folks from the area that bore the brunt of the storm.
