Powerful wind gust sends tent, restaurant staff flying into the air

CLEMSON, S.C. — Two South Carolina restaurant employees are recovering after strong winds sent an event tent airborne Monday.

According to WYFF-TV, a camera captured the moment that a gust sent the tent at Clemson's Esso Club hurtling skyward as the two workers, who were trying to keep it grounded, held on.

The video shows one of the workers falling to the ground as a table crashes into her, the station reported. Meanwhile, the second employee, identified as Samuel Foster, careens into the roof.

"It took a second to register, but then I'm, like, 20 feet in the air," Foster told WYFF. "And all I could think about was, 'I've got to land on this roof.'"
