Kids rescued from rubble at Okla. elementaryMay 20, 2013 @ 4:00 pm
MOORE, Okla. (AP) - Several children have been pulled out of the rubble alive at a school in an Oklahoma City suburb.
An Associated Press photographer saw several children being pulled out of what was left of the Plaza Towers Elementary School in Moore, Okla., on Monday after a massive tornado hit the region.
Rescue workers lifted children from the rubble before they were passed down a human chain and taken to a triage center set up in the school's parking lot.
The school is southwest of Oklahoma City. Its roof appears mangled and the walls had fallen in or had collapsed.
The National Weather Service said the tornado's preliminary classification was an EF-4, with winds up to 200 mph.
