Teenager Doesn't Realize There's A Tornado Because He's Playing Fortnite

Could you imagine being so into a game that you don't realize that there's a tornado going on? That's what happened to this teenager. 

According to Time

Anton Williams was in the middle of a round of the hugely popular video game, Fortnite, when the tornado blew through his neighborhood. However, he apparently didn’t even notice the powerful EF2 twister until it began ripping the roofs off of his neighbor’s homes.

“I was sitting at home and I was playing Fortnite, and all of sudden, I hear a bunch of noise. I look out the window and I started seeing the roof come off the houses in front of me,” Williams told WXII 12 on Monday. “I sit back down because I only have a couple people left in my game, and I was going to try to finish the game. But then it started getting worse and I started to see the power lines come down, so I told my sister and my nephew to come to the bathroom.”

But in the midst of ensuring his family’s safety, Williams said his mind was still mostly in Fortnite survival mode. “Honestly, I was thinking about the game, but I was hoping everybody was OK around me,” he said.
