Lansaw's is just one of several tales of heroism, heartbreak, and amazing escapes that have emerged from the spate of violent weather events that swept the center of the country this week. As many as 125 people are thought to have been killed by the Joplin tornado alone. "The house was ripping apart, it all happened so fast," Bethany Lansaw told NBC News....

By Anton La Guardia, Diplomatic Editor (Filed: 01/11/2005) Some think he is dead, others that he is hiding because he is scared of being killed.
