[VIDEO] Oklahoma tornado survivor, Barbara Garcia, finds missing dog during live interview

Updated May 21, 2013 at 1:27 PM

Barbara Garcia, an Oklahoma tornado survivor, was pleasantly surprised to find her missing dog while she was being interviewed by CBS News's Anna Werner.

It all began when Garcia was recounting what she did during Monday's tornado.

“I was sitting on the stool holding my dog. This was the game plan all through the years... to go in that little bathroom.... when it stopped I was right there [and] that stove cooker is what I saw,” she explained.

Garcia told Werner she hollered for her little dog but that he didn’t answer. Later, as they were walking over the rubble with the film crew a member of the team spotted the canine buried under the debris.

"Well I thought God just answered one prayer to let me be okay, but he answered both of them, because this was my second prayer," said Garcia.

Monday's tornado devastated the Oklahoma City area and killed at least 51 people.
