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.
