Another happy reunion caught on film: Moore, Okla., mother Trenda Purcell tearfully embraces her 8-year-old son Kamden after Briarwood Elementary was severely damaged by the tornado. Officials have confirmed that all of the students at the school survived the disaster, meaning there were, thankfully, many more moments like this for Briarwood parents.
