MOORE, OK-The search continued late Monday night for children believed trapped in the wreckage of their collapsed school.

Seven apparently drowned when the school filled up with water after being destroyed in a tornado.

Search crews were digging non stop in the rubble since the twister hit. They vowed to remain on scene until every child was accounted for.

At a separate school stories of rescue. Dozens of children emerged or were pulled from the ruins.

Survivors said they were hugging interior walls as they huddled in the hallway with teachers throwing their bodies on the children to protect them.

"Then they moved us to the boys and girls bathrooms," a sixth grader named Brady explained. "Cinder blocks and everything collapsed on them. But they were underneath so that kind of saved them."
