Mikki Dixon Davis on losing her son in the tornado: "It's hard to express in words"

On this evening's "Piers Morgan Live", Oklahoma tornado survivor Mikki Dixon Davis talks to Piers Morgan about the devasating loss of her son who died in Monday's twister in Moore, Okla.

"It's been one of the hardest few days of my life," says Davis. "Leaving him on Monday, just telling him 'goodbye' as I'm going to work, he's headed to school and thinking, 'Okay, I'm going to see you in a little while and then I don't. It's horrible. I just can't ... it's just hard to express in words."

"It took me, probably at least an hour to even get to, from where I was, to get to Moore," says Davis who rushed to Plaza Elementary School after the storm. "And then I ended up having to walk two miles to the school."

"And the closer that I got, the harder it was because you were seeing all kinds of houses that were demolished or not evening standing."

Tune in at 9 as Davis tells Morgan how by the time she reached the school she knew that her daughter was safe but her son "still hadn't been accounted for."
