Heart shaped hail damage from Oklahoma hail storm by Wesley Fryer

A flock of birds got caught in the massive hail storm that hit Oklahoma last Sunday. Fortunately, a caring family came to their rescue!

After the storm, the Webster family went outside to take a look at the damage. They ended up finding a flock of birds badly injured from the hail.

Ashlee Webster:

These birds were so hurt, that they couldn’t even go anywhere. At one point I had three or four in my hands at one time like picking Easter eggs out of the yard.

The birds were then take to The WildCare Foundation where they are being rehabilitated for release back into the wild.

You have to watch the incredible video below to see just how intense this hail storm was. About a 1 minute 30 seconds into the video, the pool looks like it turns into whitewater rapids! Wow!
