VIDEO: Emotional reunion of elderly woman, dog found in rubble after Oklahoma EF5 tornado

MOORE, Okla. - A CBS News video shows the emotional reunion of one Moore, Okla. tornado victim and her dog, offering a little bit of hope in the face of utter devastation.

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

"I was sittin' on the stool, holding my dog," she explains. "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 come."

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 says with a smile on her face.
