A mother and her baby were left badly bruised after a violent hailstorm in Queensland, Australia.
The storm shattered the windows of Fiona’s Simpsons car – prompting her to shield her baby from glass and the elements.
She pulled over on the side of a highway after leaving the town of Nanango when she entered the full strength of the super-cell storm - one of three that lashed the state along with two tornadoes.
When a back window was shattered, she leapt into the back seat and put her body between her baby and the large hailstones raining down on them.
Soon afterwards a front window also smashed, Simpson desperately tried to also shield her elderly grandmother.
The trio eventually drove to a nearby home and called the ambulance.
Simpson's daughter suffered bumps to her head, and her grandmother spent the night in hospital after the hailstones “shredded” her skin.
