Laptop-Shooting Dad Saved Daughter's Data

The North Carolina father who retaliated for his teenage daughter's Facebook outburst by shooting her laptop had a surprise.

Tommy Jordan told 15-year-old Hannah on Wednesday he saved the computer's hard drive where her photos and other data were stored before emptying nine shots into the computer and recording it on video.

Jordan, his wife Amy and their daughter said on NBC's "Today" show that the video's 31 million YouTube views has added scrutiny on their lives, a lesson for anyone online.

The Albemarle father and daughter say they both overreacted to family strife by sharing their domestic tit-for-tat online.

Tommy Jordan says despite what he showed the world last month, he has a great daughter who remains grounded and has no laptop to replace the one he destroyed.
