Talk about an amazing story! A woman who survived the tornadoes in Oklahoma discovered her dog alive under rubble while giving an interview to CBS News. You’ll have to watch the video to comprehend how astonishing this story is. The elderly survivor was describing her story to the news crew while standing in front of her decimated house. She was explaining her survival "game plan” - to sit on a stool in her bathroom and hold her dog in her lap.

The tornado swept her off the stool and knocked her dog out of her lap. She got buried under her stove. She didn't know what happened to her dog. She said she called to him. But he didn’t emerge. She suspected that he too got stuck beneath the rubble. She was able to pull herself out.

As she continued to give the interview, one of the crew members noticed the dog wiggling his head from out from under of a pile of debris. The woman and a tv crew member pried the dog loose. And it walked out completely unharmed!
