Okla. men get video of deadly tornado overhead
May 23, 2013 00:59 GMT
MOORE, Okla. (AP) -- Two 19-year-old Oklahoma men who took cover in a cellar during a deadly tornado were able to use their cellphones to get video of the twister as it passed over the home.
Charles Gafford was at the home of friend Alex Rodriguez as the tornado struck Monday. While in the cellar, they got their phones through an opening in the overhead door.
The video shows the tornado approaching and passing over the home. Debris, including tree limbs and a tire, fly past. The video has drawn more than 280,000 views on Youtube.
Rodriguez's mother, Amanda Odom, told The Associated Press that 19-year-olds "do stupid things" and if she had been home, there would be no video.
The tornado is blamed for at least 24 deaths in Moore.
