Kevin Durant to narrate ESPN story about Moore tornado photo Modified: May 15, 2014 at 10:53 am •  Published: May 15, 2014

On Sunday, ESPN’s Outside the Lines (9 a.m. ET) and SportsCenter (10 a.m.) will air an “#SCFeatured” story about an iconic photo that was seen around the world one year ago. Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant will narrate the piece.

The photo, taken by Paul Hellstern of The Oklahoman, shows a man, Jim Routon, and a child, Hezekiah Darbon, embracing amid the devastation of the May 20, 2013, tornado that ravaged Moore. Routon, Hezekiah’s neighbor and friend, was hugging the child after Hezekiah emerged from his elementary school that had been hit by the EF5 tornado.

Berry Tramel wrote a piece last year about the hug, the photo, and the relationship between Darbon and Routon. You can read that story here. Tramel also blogged about writing the story, and tracking down Routon.
