After a tornado struck his home, a man thought he lost everything, including his dogs.
Ron Belcher of Prairie Lakes Estates, Wisconsin watched last Tuesday as a tornado tore through his area, flattening homes in its path. Belcher’s place was one of them.
“These trailers, if you look around it just makes you want to cry. We lost everything we had,” Belcher told local station WQOW. “It came up all of a sudden and then it was so loud, and it got so dark. Your windows are already busted, and you see, like I said, the roof came off. And then things were just flying, refrigerators flying, it was just unbelievable.”
Believed to have been knocked unconscious during the ordeal, Belcher woke up and discovered everything was gone, including his two dogs, Cocoa, a husky, and Taz, a pomeranian.
Considered his kids, and one being 14, Belcher thought he would never see them again. But while Belcher was recovering at a local hospital, nurse Ciara Rockow, wanted to see if she could track down his animals. She found both at a local animal hospital, and last Thursday surprised Belcher at his bedside with Cocoa and Taz.
“This is God’s gift, that’s what keeps me moving no matter how many bad things happen,” he said.
