Amid the devastation in Oklahoma, a tornado victim's missing dog emerges from the rubble during a TV interview.

Barbara Garcia's home in Moore was destroyed by Monday's deadly twister.

"I was sitting on my stool, holding my dog, this was the game plan," she told CBS News.

When the tornado hit, the stool was blown away from under her, she "rolled around a little bit" and, when it was over, she called for her dog but he didn't answer.

"I know he's in there somewhere," Garcia told reporter Anna Werner.

Then, a bit of a miracle happened, when Werner and her crew notice the dog in the rubble, helping Garcia remove the debris and reunite the pair again.

"Well I got God to answer one prayer to let me be OK, but he answered both of them," she said.
