Mass.Tornado:West Springfield Mom Sacrifices Self To Save Daughter
"There is no greater love than to lay down one's life for one's friends."
Or Children for that matter, when I heard about this story it was so heartbreaking to hear but yet at the same time bittersweet and inspiring. You may have already heard the account but if you didn't here it is.
As Angelica Guerrero heard the tornado just outside her apartment, she grabbed her 15 year old daughter who was taking a nap and hurried her into the bathroom. Angelica then then pushed her daughter into the bath tub and lay on top her. Seconds later the whole house collapsed on top of them. Angelica was killed but her daughter was saved because her mothers body took the brunt of the collapse.
"There is no doubt she saved her daughters life,"
West Springfield Police Chief
Wow! What a mother! What more can you say?
