Branson, Mo. -- Blake and Andrea Reid arrived in Branson late Tuesday night after driving more than three hours from Arkansas. They were settling in for a what was supposed to be a romantic trip when sirens and the sound of breaking glass woke them.
"It was terrifying it really was," said Andrea.
"I was panicked. Everyone else was panicked," she said.
Blake, 21 and Andrea, 19, said they did not realize an EF-2 tornado had torn through the Hilton Hotel where they were staying on the Branson Landing on Tuesday night. Blake, a young Air Force veteran, put his military training into action.
"I threw somebody on my back," said Blake.
"There was a guy who was naked. All he had was a jacket, and there was glass everywhere, so he put him on his back," said Andrea.
The couple ran up and down 10 flights of stairs and through dark hallways trying to make sure everyone made it to safety.
