    This pic is allegedly that of a tornado victim. Unclear when or where this took place, but presumably the USA and prior to 2012 or so.
    If anyone has any information on this, please let me know.

    UPDATE: It appears that this happened in Del Rio, Texas, on May 12, 1999. This is the only article that I can find matching the photo:
    Del Rio News Herald from Del Rio, Texas on May 12, 1999 · Page 8

    An excerpt:
    "One person was helicoptered to San Angelo after being impaled by a board during atornado that. Hit Hear Loyal Valley and Castell."

    Odd expression, he looks kind of board.

    Apparently, his name is Jeffrey Hunter, it happened on 4/27/14 and here is the heartbreaking story...

    'Goodbye Mama,' Tornado Victim Sends Final Text

    I'm sure for him it was fast but his poor mother, to be on the phone with him the whole time and lose him like that, I know I wouldn't survive that pain.

    Hopefully momma isn't too keen on the internet and doesn't see this last pic of her son. As a mother, I don't even want to fathom having to live through that ordeal.

    I'm fairly confident this photo has been around since before Hunter's death. I reside in Arkansas, a tornado-prone state and in addition to looking up gore, I'd also look up "tornado death risk" and this would come up since at least 2012 or 2013. It began appearing on the Internets roughly around 2013, I'm sure, and I think some Powerpoints have picked up on the photo as a sorta cautionary tale since then. Judging by the photographic look, I'd say this photo dates back at least 5-7 years

    Me neither, I'd hate to be Nikki catsouras's dad/brother or Budd Dwyer's son/grandson but I'd also hate to be the relative of any murder victim, anyone who has had the dishonor to die abruptly and at an early age... think about it though, fate is fate and fate is an ugly bastard. I lost my father to lung cancer when he was 52 and I was 19. How did I feel? It wasn't an abrupt death, but he was young, far too young for my liking (and his). Death is death, it's a part of life but when it comes too early and too painfully, that's when it's not welcome

    I found something. Maybe this is it, maybe not.

    Del Rio News Herald from Del Rio, Texas on May 12, 1999 · Page 8

    From the article:
    "One person was helicoptered to San Angelo after being impaled by a board during a tornado that"

    This is the only thing I could find that pertains to board impalements and twisters. From 1999. Makes sense, but I can't be sure. How this got leaked, I don't know, but it's a hell of a leak...

    Is he a twister victim, or just in the wrong place at the wrong time?

    Here, there and everywhere!
    First of all let me say I'm very sorry to hear about your Dad, may he rest in peace. And I am a Momma that has lost 2 children. In 89'I lost a baby at birth, in 99' I lost a 7 yr. old to meningitis. These are the single 2 hardest thing's I've had to deal with in my life. Watching my child die before my very eyes and I wasn't able to do a damn thing was the most helpless feeling ever. It's been all these yrs. and it hurts just as much today as it did when it happened, it's a lie when they say " it will get easier with time". If anything it's worse, at least when it 1st happened I was numb and in shock, that is gone and only cold reality is left. The only reason I'm still here is my beautiful girl, she was 6 when T.J. passed and I knew if it fucked my head up as bad as it did how must she feel? I needed to be the strong loving caring Momma she needed to help her grow into a healthy strong woman. She's a Sgt. in the ARMY and going to college to be a occupational therapist. So for all of you who have lost someone dear to you, you are in my heart. This is my beauty, my heart IMG_20140809_153201.jpg

    I'm sorry you lost your father at such a young age. I'm assuming you were close to him? It's never easy to have those you care for deeply and/or love taken from you whether it be sudden or in your case an illness that day after day took a little bit of his life. That's torturous IMO. I don't agree with people that feel terminal diseases allow us time to "mentally prepare"for our loved ones death. I doubt ANYONE has the ability to prepare for the loss of a loved one. Psychologically many human folk don't faire too well when it comes to death and dying. Regardless of the heads up or lack there of. Birth marks the beginning of our death. Soon as we take in that very first breath of air the countdown begins! We become grief stricken and mourn for our dearly departed as if it were them that are in pain and suffering, when its completely the other way around. Us living are bound to this Earth and all it has to offer...Good and Bad... I suppose it depends a lot also on your belief system and its feelings/theory in regards to what becomes of us posthumously. Etc..etc..

    Oh and in closing...I'd like to state that I had a biggest, loudest brain fart ever and thus forgot where the fuck I was going with all this! I do assure you though that is was going to be fucken awesome!
