Imagine this scenario: Your town is in ruins. Your house is flattened. The whereabouts of your friends and family are uncertain.
You’re in shock.
And then you get a text message from your friend who says he is under some rubble at a nearby street corner.
That is exactly what happened to a Missouri man Monday afternoon.
“I just got a message from him that said ‘I’m stuck,'” the man told KTUL.
Rescue workers helped the man out of a collapsed building on 20th street and Connecticut Avenue while his buddy watched.
“Yeah, he’s my friend. My best friend,” he said.
Beautiful stuff on an otherwise ugly day.
