Branson's uncle, Johnny Baker, said: “The only way he found his way back was with lightning strikes that lit the road. He ran as fast as he could, as hard as he could, he made a mile in 10 minutes. That’s pretty impressive for a little kid…The last thing Branson told them was, ‘Mom, Dad, please don’t die, I will be back.’”

Branson ran a mile in pitch-black darkness in 10 minutes, dodging downed live power lines and dangerous debris, to save his parents' lives after their truck was hit by a tornado in Oklahoma on April 27, 2024. See article here.
