The little boy (Hezekiah Darbon) and the man (Jim Routon) are neighbors from the same cul-de-sac, and Jim drove to the school when he realized it was in the storm's path to look for Hezekiah. The whole thing is pretty ridiculously touching, so have tissues handy. Also, a warning: the link opens this story with another tornado news clip auto-playing at the top of the page, so muting may be necessary.
