Man mowing lawn defies twister in Alberta, Canada

A photograph of a man mowing his lawn with an ominous tornado spinning in the background has been doing the rounds on social media this week - it even made BBC news

Mr Theunis Wessels, from Alberta, Canada said he was very aware of the twister which was about one and a quarter miles from their house, but "wasn't worried at all" – unlike his daughter, who was quite concerned by her father’s nonchalance.

Understandably, the picture caused a storm on the social media! Thankfully the tornado apparently only lasted 5 minutes, caused no injuries in the town, and only minor structural damage.
