A family member told Courtney that the mother was trapped, clutching her 2-year-old. Family members worked for over 30 minutes to free them from the debris.
Video from the scene showed the damaged trailer. It appeared that it was nearly split in half. The family said the RV home rolled about 25 yards.
Beasley has a population of about 680 people, and the homes are spread apart between farmland.
According to ABC13 Meteorologist Rachel Briers, the highest winds moved through Beasley around 5:40 a.m. Tuesday. It’s possible the strong winds produced an area of rotation. The National Weather Service is investigating to determine if a tornado actually touched down.
