Unbelievable: Tornado Victim Finds Her Dog Under The Rubble During TV Interview

A devastating tornado hit Moore, Oklahoma yesterday, causing severe damage to buildings and leaving many people dead or injured.

Many homes and buildings in the town of Moore, about 16 kilometres south of Oklahoma City, have been reduced to rubble, including two elementary schools. As you might expect, most of the stories coming out of the area are heartbreaking.

But even in the middle of a disaster, there are some rays of hope. This video is one.

Barbara Garcia, the woman being interviewed by CBS News above, was inside her house when the tornado hit. She had taken shelter in a small bathroom with her dog.

She managed to escape from the storm unhurt, and she says she never lost consciousness.

Her home was decimated, though. And maybe worse than that, she lost her dog.

Until something incredible happens. As the news cameras role, Garcia's dog suddenly appears, very much alive, from under the rubble.
