VALPARAISO, Ind. (AP) - An Indiana native is crediting his wife's labor pains for helping his family escape a deadly Oklahoma tornado that destroyed their home.
Jacob Schroeder tells The Times in Munster he was at work in Oklahoma City Monday when his wife, Tiffany, called from their home in Moore, Okla., to say she was experiencing labor pains and needed to go to the hospital. He says he left Tinker Air Force Base where he's stationed and got his wife and their youngest daughter and went to the hospital.
Tiffany later insisted he return to Moore to get their oldest daughter, Leigh, from Plaza Towers Elementary School. He picked her up shortly before the storm hit.
The school was destroyed, and several students were killed.
Schroeder plans to rebuild in Moore.
