    Found dog draws a crowd


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     rstanhouse lives in Bloomington, Indiana, and went to Henryville on Saturday to check on his college roommate, whose house and those of family members were blown off their foundations in the tornado. 'My buddy had lost his cat, and one of the other family members had lost their cat, and then his sister had lost her dog.' While friends were sorting through the rubble, somebody yelled, 'Hey, we found the dog!' It was 'alive and well in what was her basement.'
    - dsashin, CNN iReport producer

    Through the tears and heartbreak of the tornado damage in Henryville Indiana, there were a rare moments of smiles and nervous laughter as lost items were returned to their owners- like this dog found trapped in a basement.

    Some of the nearby reporters were quite interested in this happy reunion, however brief. Notice in the background that the same searchers who found the dog were already back to work sorting through the debris for more personal items that might have survived the massive storm.
