A Tulsa resident recorded the aftermath of a tornado that slammed a restaurant on August 6, showing the injuries he sustained from the glass of the restaurant’s window. Several other people were injured when the tornado hit TGI Friday’s and several other businesses in midtown Tulsa. One woman said her son suffered a fractured leg and required stitches, while she had broken her neck and lost “a lot of blood”. Austin Sleeper recorded the moment before the tornado hit the restaurant, when people in the background can be heard saying, “We should get away from the window.” The next videos show the aftermath of the tornado, including his legs, which were covered in blood from cuts he sustained during the tornado. In a post on Facebook, Sleeper wrote, “I can’t believe I lived through that.” Credit: Facebook/Austin Sleeper via Storyful
