A Waikato boy has had a lucky escape after he was swept up into the air by a tornado on his way home from school yesterday. George Jeffrey, 13, from Matamata Intermediate is recovering from grazes to one side of his body after the twister lifted him into the air and dumped him into gravel, narrowly missing a power pole. George told Rowan Quinn he'd heard about tornados but never thought he'd actually get caught up in one.George Jeffrey
