FILE - In this Oct. 3, 2011 file photo, Mark Lindquist, of Joplin, Mo., is embraced by his sisters Vehrlene Crosswhite, left, and Linda Baldwin just before being released from the Missouri Rehabilitation Center in Mount Vernon, Mo. By all accounts, Lindquist is a hero, an underpaid social worker who nearly gave his life trying to save three developmentally disabled adults from the Joplin tornado. But heroism doesn't pay the bills, not when the tornado's 200 mph winds tossed Lindquist nearly a block, broke every rib, obliterated his shoulder, knocked out most of his teeth and put him in a coma for three months.
