GA Family Rode Out Tornado in Tanning Bed

(By TRENTON, Ga. WAGA-TV) - A Georgia salon owner is thankful she and her daughters are still alive after the three of them rode out a deadly storm by taking shelter in an unlikely place -- a tanning bed.

Lisa Rice says she noticed dark skies and flying debris in downtown Trenton late Wednesday before she and her daughters, ages 19 and 21, jumped into the tanning bed and closed it to shield themselves.

Rice says they felt air rushing overhead and heard the salon's roof peel off. About 30 seconds later, it was over.

Rice says the business just opened three weeks ago and she doesn't have insurance. Still, she's simply glad she survived.

And Rice is relieved her daughters are also safe. Their names -- no kidding -- are Stormy and Sky.
