St. Louis Teen Helps Wheel Disabled Man Home as Tornado Warning Sounds
Amber Gilleylen and her family were returning home from the store before a forecasted tornado in St.
Louis, Missouri, when they spotted a man struggling to push himself up a hill in his wheelchair.
Gilleylen pulled over and asked the man, a double amputee who they later learned is named Gregory Beck, if he needed some help.
Wasting no time, Gilleylen’s 16-year-old son, Seth, jumped out of the car and began to push the man the block-and-a-half distance home as tornado warning sirens continued to ring out.
Uploading the video to Facebook, Gilleylen recounted that Beck said “he could have been caught in a terrible storm and because of this young man he gets to go home dry and safe.” Gilleylen has launched a GoFundMe campaign to buy Beck an electronic wheelchair.
