A Canadian man has shown his commitment to getting the job done in a widely-shared photo of him mowing the lawn as a mega tornado rages in the background.

Theunis Wessels was pictured working away in his backyard seemingly oblivious to the major hazard looming nearby.

The tornado struck the town of Three Hills in Alberta on Friday evening but is not thought to have killed anyone.

Mr Wessels told media he was aware of the tornado behind him and was “keeping an eye on it”. He insists it was much further away than it appears in the photo.

  1. I think that this man must be very brave, or have a very demanding lawn mowing business! I hope he got the job done!
