Oklahoma Tornado Survivor Barbara Garcia lost her home after a severe tornado tore apart the town of Moor, Oklahoma. Somehow, Garcia managed to survive the catastrophe when she clutched her pet dog and sought shelter inside the bathroom of her former home.

As the walls began to fall, Garcia lost her dog amid the chaos. Unfortunately, after the storm had past, Garcia could not find her dog again.

In an interview with CBS News, Barbara Garcia described the aftermath of the frightening event.

"I hollered for my little dog. ... he didn't answer," she said. "So I know he's in here somewhere."

As CBS news continued to conduct the interview, a reporter noticed movement from underneath the rubble. "The dog, the dog! Hi, puppy!"

A stunned Barbara Garcia and TV crew went straight to work, removing the debris trapping Garcia's little grey schnauzer. "Oh thank God. … Bless your little bitty heart," Garcia said

A special moment, Garcia said: "I thought God just answered one prayer -- to let me be OK -- but he answered both of them, because this was my second prayer."

A happy story amid a day of tragedy, the deadly Oklahoma tornado (two miles wide, 22 miles long) has claimed the lives of 51 people, including 20 children, according to data presented by the AP. Strangely, the Oklahoma medical examiner's office revised the official death toll to a total of 24, seven of whom were children.

"We're a tough state. This is a tough community," Lt. Gov. Todd Lamb told CNN on Tuesday. "There is hope. We always have hope. We always have faith."
