A young mother was caught in some extreme weather while driving with her grandmom and infant daughter, when they suddenly found themselves inside a supercell tornado in a small town north of Brisbane, Australia.

Tennis ball sized hail battered the car, shattering windows, and damaging the body of the car. Fiona Simpson pulled the car over and used her body to shield her daughter from the large chunks of ice raining down on them. .

All three occupants of the vehicle were taken to the hospital but none had any life threatening injuries. A post shared by her on Facebook, pleads with others not to drive during severe storms as well as stating she “learned her lesson, never drive during hailstorms!”
