Indiana Trooper Saves Self In Tornado
March 05, 2012
An Indiana State Police trooper freed himself from tornado debris this weekend after he found himself pinned in his basement under air-conditioning units, reports WTKR.
Trooper Martin Wimp, a Marine reservist, used his SWAT skills and military training to escape peril at his home in Henryville, which fellow trooper Shaun Hannon compared to a war zone.

God bless the trooper, glad he was able to extract himself. With that new assinine law they passed in Indiana, it's a good thing it was his own house, and not someone else's.

Are kidding me? Glad he is ok but, is this really a story. Surprised the super trooper didn't have his cape on still, he could have just flown away from the storm! C'mon Police Mag!
