COOKEVILLE, Tenn. (WBIR) — Help is pouring into Putnam County and other parts of Middle Tennessee that were devastated by tornadoes this week.

Some help even rolled in on a tricycle.

Susan Stout Dyer posted a photo of her 3-year-old grandson Dax riding through her Prosperity Point neighborhood in Cookeville on Friday. It was one of the areas where many homes were destroyed by the early morning storms.

When she asked him what he was doing, his answer just melted her heart.

"He told me 'he had to come work to help his neighbors with their broken houses' because 'that’s what God wants us to do.'" she said.

He even had his hammer and other tools strapped to the back of his trike.
