Alabama Baseball player rides out tornado in bathtub

You gotta do what you've gotta do. University of Alabama outfielder Andrew Miller and his roommates only had seconds to react. They had seconds to do something to get out of the way of one of the deadliest tornado outbreaks in U.S History.

Miller and his pals were in their rental home, about 400 yards off of 15th Street one of the epicenters of Tuscaloosa's damage. They grabbed a mattress and got into a bathtub. None of the four were hurt.

Amidst the hundreds of deaths and massive destruction, there are stories of survivors, people who did whatever they had to do to survive nature's fury.

Perhaps the best line in the story we mention here is at the end when we here about Miller and his teammates going back to 15th Street and helped clean trees off their house and help their neighbors. We wish them and everyone else down there the best.
