Woman's pickup tossed by tornado

A Texas mother and her three-year-old son survived being tossed by a tornado Wednesday.

Amber Leon was driving along I-20 near Forney with her son when they were hit by the twister.

"I looked to my right and I could see the tornado coming up over there," Leon recalled. "All I could think about was 'Please don't wreck'."

In an instant the storm turned her vehicle and her world upside down.

A Good Samaritan rescued Lewis and her son and drove them to safety.
