Tornados are scary but this mother did what she had to do when it mattered most.

Amanda Stockfelt and her baby girl were swept up by one of the tornados that ripped through New Orleans, Louisiana, Tuesday.

“I heard the sound of a freight train and I was holding her. All I could think of was putting her back in her car seat,” Stockfelt told WVUE. “So I put her in the car seat, buckled her up, and put her underneath my work desk. I crawled underneath there with her and locked my arm around the handle of her car seat.”
