While Barbara Garcia was being interviewed by CBS News about the Oklahoma City tornado that destroyed her home and tore her dog from her arms, the dog was found alive nearby under the rubble.

Garcia told reporter Anna Werner that she was sitting in her home holding onto her dog when the tornado hit. As the walls of her home tumbled, Garcia and her dog became separated.

"I hollered for my little dog, but he didn't answer, so I know he's in here somewhere," Garcia said, gesturing to the remains of her home.

Then, the dog appeared under some rubble. Garcia went to rescue it. "Bless your little, bitty heart," she said.

"Well I got God to answer one prayer to let me be OK, but he answered both of them," Garcia said. "Because this was my second prayer."
