Heartwarming videos of parents reuniting with kids at Oklahoma school destroyed by tornado

Two heart-wrenching videos from NewsOK of Oklahoma parents reuniting with their kids at the Briarwood Elementary school that was destroyed by yesterday’s tornadoes.

It’s raw video, and it’s really quite amazing. ┬áThe second, below, shows a mom finding her little son.

(Equally heart-wrenching, a woman is reunited with her dog in the middle of an interview about losing her dog in the rubble of her home.)

This one was particularly heart-warming – Trenda Purcell reunited with her son Kamden.
