‘It Was Just A Shock Really’: Photo Blown Over 100 Miles Away During Easter Tornado

FOSTERS, Ala. (CBS Local) — An Alabama man who recovered a photo that traveled more than 100 miles from Mississippi during an Easter tornado is sending it back after the owners were identified on social media.

Daniel Bailey said he was checking his property in Fosters for storm damage on Monday when he saw something odd.

“I thought it was trash and I went to pick up and seen it was a photo,” he told WBMA.

There, in the middle of his 40-acre woods, he found a picture of three small children in Halloween costumes.

“It didn’t even look like it was damaged, it wasn’t even wet,” he said.

Bailey shared the photo on Facebook in hopes of finding the owner. That’s when he learned it belonged to a family in Moss, Mississippi.

“I’d seen it on Facebook and people had tagged me in it,” said Bridgette Hutchinson, who is the little cheerleader in the photo.

The picture traveled from her family’s Mississippi home that was destroyed by a tornado.

“It was just a shock really, I couldn’t believe that it was found all the way in Alabama,” she said.

Bailey plans to mail it back to the family this week.

“I know it’s a good thing for the family to get back some of those memories,” he said. “They can’t replace everything that was lost, but they can at least get something back.”

WATCH: Stephen King Reads From His New Book ‘If It Bleeds’

Legendary author Stephen King reads from his latest release 'If It Bleeds.'

WATCH: Stephen King Reads From His New Book ‘If It Bleeds’

Legendary storyteller Stephen King reads the first chapter of his next book, If It Bleeds, in a worldwide premiere on YouTube. Check out the video below for an exclusive sneak peek at this brand-new novella collection, which will be released on April 21 from ViacomCBS sister company Simon & Schuster.

Stephen King has published more than sixty books, all of them worldwide bestsellers. Now the #1 New York Times bestselling author and master of short fiction has written an extraordinary collection of four new and compelling novellas: “Mr. Harrigan’s Phone,” “The Life of Chuck,” “Rat,” and the title story, “If It Bleeds.”

Just as impactful and enduring as his longer fiction, King’s short stories are their own dark treat. His full range is on display once again with If It Bleeds, which offers readers four more works sure to prove as iconic as their predecessors. In the title story, reader favorite Holly Gibney (from the Mr. Mercedes trilogy and The Outsider) must face her fears, and possibly another outsider—this time on her own. In “Mr. Harrigan’s Phone” an intergenerational friendship has a disturbing afterlife. “The Life of Chuck” explores, beautifully, how each of us contains multitudes. And in “Rat,” a struggling writer must contend with the darker side of ambition.

If these stories exhibit King’s creative depths, they also prove that certain themes endure. One of King’s great concerns is evil, and in If It Bleeds, there’s plenty of it, imagined in the title story as “a big bird, all frowsy and frosty grey.” There is also evil’s opposite, which in King’s fiction often manifests as friendship. In these stories, Holly Gibney is reminded that friendship is not only life-affirming but can be life-saving.

King also reminds us that life’s quotidian pleasures are even more glorious because they are fleeting: the outrageous good fortune of a beautiful blue day after a string of grey ones; the delight of dancing really well, when every move feels perfect; a serendipitous meeting. It’s in these moments that King’s ability to describe pure joy rivals his ability to terrify us.

Don’t miss If It Bleeds, out on April 21 wherever books are sold.
