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!
