"I know that they were listening to [the storm] outside and then they all ran inside and that's when it had no notice or nothing, it just fell," Massey explained.

Massey's grandmother and sister were treated for minor injuries and released from the hospital Monday night. Kimball's leg injury, however, will require surgery, Massey said. He is being treated at Atlanta Medical Center.

"He's alive. I mean, that's the main thing," Massey concluded.
