KSNW, Sedgwick County — for the first time since Tornado struck parts of Andover and Sedgwick County.. I hear from a woman whose parents were injured in a storm. Thankfully, both are expected to be fine.
Jamie Sapel’s mother has been hospitalized since the storm struck. All that remains in their home is a concrete block on the ground and a huge pile of debris. While giving a devastating blow, Saypel said she was happy that her family was okay.
Seipel and her son were in the movie on Friday when the tornado landed in her neighborhood in Sedgwick County. Her mother and father were at home and did not know that a tornado was occurring on them.
When the tornado destroyed the house, Saypel’s parents were inside the house. Her father suffered a slight injury to her arm. He was able to find his wife in the rubble. Her recovery will take longer. She has two broken vertebrae, but no spinal cord injury or paralysis.
“Apart from that and the concussion, she’s almost unscathed, which is miraculous to me,” Saypel said.
Seipel said her mom will leave the ICU on Thursday. She will be in a skilled nursing home while she recovers.
