Joplin tornado: One year later
Stranger saves baby
Three month old Greyson Chaligoj took a trip to Wal Mart with his mother Jami and grandmother Debby and almost got whirled away by the deadly tornado.
Grandma brought little Grayson into the store belted in his car seat.
She set Greyson in the seat down in front of her for a moment, when suddenly the tornado began prying apart the Wal Mart roof.
"This man then threw himself on Greyson," Jami said "He could have been blown away. The man saved his life."
Jami later learned the stranger's name -- Tommy Carpenter.
