STORMS: Young mum's heroic act to save baby from hail

A young mum has been left battered and bruised after using her body to shield her baby from a ferocious hailstorm that's caused vast amounts of damage in the South Burnett.
Fiona Simpson's (pictured above) back, shoulders and arms are a mess of angry welts and bruises after yesterday's storm shattered her car windows between Nanango and Kingaroy.
She says when the 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.
