Oklahoma Tornado Survivor Finds Dog Alive In Rubble During TV Interview
Austinist ^

Posted on 05/22/2013 5:43:17 AM PDT by chessplayer

During an interview with CBS News' Anna Werner, Barbara Garcia described surviving the huge tornado that struck Oklahoma City and its suburbs yesterday. Garcia recalled: "I was sitting on my stool, holding my dog, this was the game plan." Then, the tornado hit, the stool was blown away from under her, "I rolled around a little bit, and when it stopped... I hollered for my little dog. He didn't answer, he didn't come." The tornado destroyed her house, and Garcia pointed to the rubble saying, "I know he's in there somewhere."

OMG that is incredible! I can’t even imagine what it must have been like for that woman to find her dog alive like that.

Seen it..the 2 journalists should have been smacked. They let the old lady struggle with heavy rubbles instead of helping her. The lady had to ask them to help her.
were they my employees they would be sacked for being so crass.

Comments a 15 year old liberal would make.

Unless you know that to be factual, it's mean.

Want attention much? Is your life that miserable that you have to try to bring everyone down with you. Sorry, not working. It’s people like you that the Lord came to save. I’ll pray for you.

Yeah, elderly lady buries her dog under debris in the hopes that a news crew might wander by to talk with her and then just happen to see the dog. Who, by the way, is so well trained that she just lies there waiting for the sign to move. Makes perfect sense to me. </sarcasm>

My daddy always said you can't fix stupid. He was soooo right.

I think she is a tough old lady. She didn’t seem to be too upset about the tornado wiping out her house and community, either. It seems she knows what is important and has probably experienced a good deal of pain in her years, chalked this devastation up to being just another episode of life.

Funny isn’t it? Funny, how just plain ordinary folks in OKC, Moore, OK and Joplin, MO, etc. all pitch in for the common cause of leaning on each other and reaching out to help neighbors & friends in time of need. No Obama, no
Federal Government, no Obama & his disgusting BS & political spin, just folks helping other folks in time of need and despair. That’s America!!!

Some difference from the mass looting and crime we all witnessed in Obama’s New Orleans!!! Always tell my kids and grandkids, it’s always the first responders, the local doctors, nurses, hospitals, churches, the Red Cross, the Salvation army, the local business community, etc. that makes the world turn!!! Major hats off and kudos to to all the regular dudes and dames for being what real Americans are!!!

No need to swipe the broad brush of “New Orleans” expecting the government to do everything. We all know it was primarily specific wards, not everyone. Many people there not used for news coverage just got to work fixing stuff....

I cried when I saw the video. Our schnauzer would have been more vocal, but I’m very happy for the woman that she found her dog alive and unharmed. She lost everything but still has her own life and the companionship of her dog.

Never heard of shock?
This woman is in shock. People in shock don’t react normally. They appear dazed. Their emotions are often repressed compared to what you normally expect for the circumstances. You can see it in many of the interviews of the survivors. Especially in the children. Even that dog is in shock and doesn’t know what is going on or how to react.

I have no doubt the woman and the dog are in hock, but the “journalists” who I suspect set up the whole scenario are devious, and not in shock

People are totally clueless about New Orleans because they totally beleived all of the crap they were fed by MSM. Also they don’t want to know the truth because it doesn’t fit their view of the world.

My immediate reaction to seeing this the other day was: Why is the reporter just standing there watching this elderly woman try to lift a piece of debris off of her dog? Why does the woman have to ask for help?

Then why did you accuse this woman who lost virtually everything of burying her dog to get on TV?

Are you so desperate for attention that you’ll keep changing your story until you find one that people will agree with?

Take your meds and find another place to troll.

I can’t imagine the heartless, opportunistic, cynical PR*** that would set something up like this right after such a disaster, but then I remember that “journalists” are involved and it all makes sense. I’d really like to believe that it was real though.

She wasn’t overly exasperated or breaking down in tears when talking about her house being destroyed and almost dying in the tornado either, so was she faking her demolished house as well?
She just seemed like a plain talking lady who possibly was in a little shock/over whelmed.
So many weird ass people on the internet who seem to have lost all humanity when sitting on their ass behind a computer screen with total anonymity.

How did the CBS reporter set this up? They buried the dog without the elderly lady knowing? They went over to interview her and “spot” the dog for her reaction? Please explain how this is a set up by the victim or the CBS interviewer?

Yup. They found a dog, knew it was that womans dog even before talking to her, and buried it under the rubble. Then they waited for the woman to mention her dog, and said,,,”there he is!” Makes sense to me. sarc/

I tend to think it was not staged but the fact that the dog just happened to be 5 feet from where the interview was taking place would be one heck of a coincidence. Especially since she said they were in a different spot when the storm hit. As a dog owner I want this story to be true.
