One child survivor from the school shares his story: "We were all bunched up"

Tonight, "Piers Morgan Live" covered all angles of the devastating tornado that struck the town of Moore, Okla. earlier today and killed at least 51, 20 of whom were children. Joining Piers Morgan live from Moore, CNN reporter George Howell spoke with the Bautista family whose children were in school just before the tornado hit:

"I'm speechless. How did this happen? Why did this happen?" Norma Bautista asked. "How are we going to wake up tomorrow and everything's missing - the school, these houses, their friends. Nobody knows where anybody is... Hopefully if anybody's listening, we're okay."

Howell also talked with Julio Bautista who was in the school taking cover just before the storm ripped through Moore, Okla.

"All of my friends were hot and sweaty because we were all bunched up," Julio said as he acted out how the students ducked and covered with their hands.

Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, as the Rodriguez and Bautista families describe how they survived the tornado.
