The makers of a kitchen faucet are helping a Florida man start over after a tornado demolished his mobile home.
The twister spawned by Hurricane Ivan destroyed everything including the kitchen sink at James Abney's home, but not the kitchen faucet.
The faucet, supported by narrow water pipes, was the only thing left standing in the rubble of Abney's trailer home.
After seeing an Associated Press photo of the spigot sticking into the air, Delta Faucet workers recognized the fixture as one of theirs and tracked Abney down.
The Indianapolis-based company gave Abney ten-thousand dollars toward a down payment on a new home.
The 55-year-old Air Force retiree calls it a "godsend."
