When Michael Degado’s house fell during a tornado that passed through Rowlett, Texas, he and his family were caught off guard.
Michael’s brother and grandmother were dragged from the rubble, and the family was moved to an emergency shelter.
Michael, on the other hand, was concerned about the well-being of his Miniature Pinscher puppy, Lucy.
After the tornado passed, Michael was able to go out to find Lucy two days later. Some rescuers accompanied him and helped with the search, but Lucy was nowhere to be seen.
The rescuers were concerned that the small puppy would perish in the tornado, but Michael refused to let up
Onlookers were scared as they witnessed Michael risking his life by diving through the dangerous debris in search of Lucy.
