VIDEO: Emotional reunion of elderly woman, dog found in rubble after Oklahoma tornado

(WXYZ) - A CBS News video shows the emotional reunion of one Moore, Oklahoma tornado victim and her dog offers a little bit of hope in the face of utter devastation.

Featured in the video is an elderly woman. She stands in the middle of a rubble pile that was once her home, calmly giving a reporter her account of events when the tornado struck.

"I was sittin' on the stool, holding my dog," she explained. "The electric went off in the bathroom about the same time I felt the stool come up out of the floor."

She goes on to describe how she was lying among the rubble when she "hollered for my little dog, but he didn't answer or didn't come."

But then suddenly a producer spots the dog, alive in the rubble.

"Well I thought God just answered one prayer; 'let me be OK,' but He answered both of them," she said with a smile on her face.
