OMG Oklahoma tornado victim interviewed about losing her dog in rubble, when she spots her dog

OMG – this is a note from John – I just watched this video, and OMG. Barbara Garcia, an Oklahoma tornado victim, lost her home (and her poor dog) while huddled with her pet in her bathroom, does an interview with CBS about the experience.

She talks about huddling on a stool with her dog in her bathroom, her designated safe room, when suddenly everything came crashing down, she was thrown to the ground and buried in the ruins of her home, seen behind her in the image below.

“I hollered for my little dog, and he didn’t answer or didn’t come, so I know he’s in here, somewhere,” she says, pointing to the utter devastation around her, that used to be her home.

“I hollered for my little dog, and he didn’t answer or didn’t come, so I know he’s in here, somewhere,” she says, pointing to the utter devastation around her, that used to be her home.

Then suddenly you hear the CBS reporter say “the dog, the dog!”

The camera pans, and you see the dog, literally behind the woman, buried in some debris, it’s head sticking out, unable to move.

With the help of the news crew, they moved the debris and freed the dog.

“Well, I thought God answered one prayer, let me be okay. He answered both of ’em. Because this was my lamb.”

Most pet owners are attached to their animals, and the thought of losing them during such a horrible disaster is something we’d all rather not even think about.

This time, thank God, it worked out.

Watch this video. It’s really something remarkable. The dog pops up around 1:30 or so into the video.
