Video: Man Stuck In 375-Foot High Crane As Tornado Approaches Nashville

Very early on Tuesday morning (March 3), a tornado ripped through Nashville and its surrounding areas. It happened so quickly that residents were barely given a warning, if they even got one.

Many people, including Carrie Underwood’s family, were at home when the tornado touched down and waited out the terrifying storm in a safe room. While she was in New York City on a book tour, her husband Mike Fisher was at home alone with their sons, Isaiah (5) and Jacob (13 months).

She told Carson Daly and Savannah Guthrie on TODAY that Mike had to go upstairs to wake their sons and carry them down to a “safe room” around two in the morning. “I bet everyone was crying,” she said.

One person who was not at home, and presumably still on the job, was a man named Jason Nash.

In a Facebook post, which has since been deleted, Nash shared a frightening video of his view of the tornado coming into Nashville. He was in a crane that was 375 feet above the ground.

In the video that has been reposted several times on Twitter, Nash can be heard saying, “There’s a real tornado! Right there! Oh my God…

He continued, “If something happens up here, make sure everybody knows I love them. This is no joke. It’s a real tornado, right f-in’ there!

His caption on the original Facebook post read, “I got stuck in 375ft high tower crane last night in Nashville tornado. Scared me bad. We had like 2 minute warning. Takes me 15min to climb down. Video sucks but that wasnt [sic] a big priority at the time.”

We aren’t sure as to why his original post is no longer on Facebook, but two accounts on Twitter have each received thousands and thousands of views on the reposted video. We’re happy to hear Nash made it out of there safely.

Watch the video he filmed from 375 feet in the air below.
