(Newser) – The tiny kitten had no business surviving the Ohio tornado that brought down a barn around it, but WHIO meteorologist Rich Wirdzek found it mewling its little heart out in the rubble. (He posted different footage of the actual rescue on his Facebook page.) Wirdzek got the kitten into the warmth of his news truck, and it's now doing fine. The family who owned the barn in Cedarville said it was part of a recent litter born there.
