Implant found in Tornado Rubble

Moore Medical Center damage
A Oklahoma nurse found a cochlear implant that was scheduled to be given to an adopted girl in the rubble left by the deadly tornado that tore through the Tulsa suburb of Moore. Five-year-old Jayde Scholl was adopted last year by a doctor of audiology who works at the Scholl Center, a speech and hearing clinic located in Tulsa.  Jayde was scheduled for her second implant surgery this past Monday, but the tornado interrupted those plans when the device was lost in what was left of the Moore Medical Center (see photo)--until a nurse located it. Thanks to the discovery, Jayde had her surgery yesterday at the Norman Healthplex. Below is a video report on Jayde's first implant surgery. No captions but you can read the story here.
