Man finds money in rubble

Moore, Okla (WAOW) -

After hours of digging and praying, an Oklahoma man found a wad of cash he'd lost in last week's tornado.

Tom Bridges received $2,000 after selling his boat. He says he left the money in an envelope on a window ledge, then the tornado hit.

Bridges, along with a couple dozen volunteers found the money this morning. It was buried under five feet of rubble.

"So many people helped, and when I found it, I just sat down and started crying, and they all got around me, and prayed for me that I found it.  Because they said that 20 minutes before that, that they was praying that we'd find that, and the prayers was answered," Bridges said.

Bridges lost his home of 19 years in the twister. He plans to use the money to get a new pick-up truck.
