NEW YORK, May 21 (UPI) -- The girl who gained fame as the miracle "Mud Baby" after surviving a deadly 1999 tornado in Moore, Okla., says she is praying for the victims of Monday's storm.

Aleah Crago, 14, was just 10 months old when rescuers found her face-down in the mud after the May 3, 1999, tornado. She told Inside Edition she was waiting to hear if her younger sister was safe after the town was hit by Monday's deadly storm.

"I was really sad when I heard about the tornado. My little sister still lives in the Moore area ... I don't know if she's safe," she said Tuesday. "I hope kids in the schools were lucky like me. I'm praying for them."
