Oklahoma Tornado Granny reunited with her dog while giving TV interview


Barbara-Garcia-Tornado

If you haven’t been living in a South African mine, you would have by now heard about the devastating tornado that tore it’s way through the aptly named Tornado alley, pretty much leveling a large part of Oklahoma.

Normally this type of news is really upsetting with it scoring fairly low on the daily smile-o-meter, but every now and again there’s a story that makes the news, which just makes you believe that everything is going to be OK, albeit for just a moment.

The granny in this interview is Barbara Garcia and while being interviewed in front of what used to be her house, something really magical happened. Barbara told the reporter:

I was sitting on the stool holding my dog. This was the game plan all through the years, to go in that little bathroom (together). I rolled around a little bit and when it stopped I was right there (and) that stove cooker is what I saw. I never lost consciousness and I hollered for my little dog and he didn’t answer, he didn’t come, so I know he’s in here somewhere.

As she was in the process of telling her very sad story someone spotted a dog’s head in the house’s rubble, pointing it out to Barbara. What followed was a fairly emotional reunion between Barbara and her pup on live tv. *GUSH*

Im a guy with a very particular view of life... im not quite sure what that view is just yet, but when I find out I'll be sure to let you know...
