If you’ve turned on the news in the last 48 hours, you’ve no doubt seen the devastating images and video of the aftermath of the mile-wide tornado ripped through Oklahoma, destroying everything in its path.

The destruction left behind after the storm is tough to watch, but through it all, amazing stories of survival and rescues have been coming out, like this happy ending for a victim and her pet dog.

You’ve most likely have seen this viral video make its rounds yesterday, but it’s worth to watch again and again. A tornado survivor who thought she lost her pet dog was being interviewed by CBS News when all of a sudden, her dog was found alive underneath the rubble of her former home.

Barbara Garcia told her story of being caught in the tornado’s path and how she took cover, adding that she lost her beloved pet dog in the chaos.

But in a miraculous moment on camera, someone spotted the dog under debris of the house and it was pulled to safety.

“Well, I thought God just answered one prayer – to let me be okay,” she said to CBS News. “But he answered both of them, because this was my second prayer.”

Watch her amazing story below (skip to the 1:30 mark for the dog).
