Woodward Toddler Expected to Recover After Tornado

KSCB News - April 19, 2012 5:49 am

WOODWARD, Okla. (AP) – Family members say a 2-year-old boy who

was injured in a tornado that killed his father and two sisters is

expected to recover.

Ty Coolie was flown to a Lubbock, Texas, hospital for treatment

following the early Sunday tornado that killed six and injured 36.

Ty’s grandmother, Shelly Hobbie, told The Oklahoman

(http://bit.ly/HJxpEI) Ty has on a cast from his chest at his rib

cage down. She says he doesn’t understand why he can’t be held and

that his father and sisters are gone.

Twenty-seven-year-old Frank Hobbie and his daughters, 7-year-old

Faith and 4-year-old Kelly, were killed when the storm hit their

mobile home about 12:18 a.m. Sunday.

Shelly Hobbie says her stepson was a devoted single father who

worked at H&P Drilling in Tulsa and liked to fix cars.
