"Twister" Behind the Scenes

With Twisters coming out in July, there has been a flurry of interest in the original. Above, you will find behind-the-scenes footage taken while shooting 1996's Twister. I found one shot really interesting. It is from the Wakita sequence (Jo's aunt) and it occurs at 12:27. You see a law enforcement officer carrying a baby. 

Consider that, three years later, the F-5 tornado that struck Bridge Creek, Oklahoma, caused a baby to go airborne and missing for a considerable period of time. Then, an incredible stroke of luck. 

Sometimes, life really does imitate fiction.
