Principal recounts storm hitting Moore school
May 24, 2013 20:38 GMT
MOORE, Okla. (AP) -- The principal of the Oklahoma elementary school where seven children died in a tornado says her teachers did everything they could to save their lives.
Plaza Towers Elementary Principal Amy Simpson said at an emotional news conference Friday that children regularly had tornado drills and bravely faced a storm carrying 210 mph winds.
After taking the first half of Monday to celebrate the students' accomplishments during the year, the weather worsened and the school turned attention to the skies. The twister hit just before the end of the school day.
Simpson said some teachers took the weight of collapsed walls onto their bodies to save children.
Monday's tornado was a top-of-the-scale EF5. The storm killed 24, including 10 children.
