OKLAHOMA CITY -

An Oklahoma Natural Gas employee is being hailed as a hero. He saw the tornado damage overnight at the Forest Park Estates near Southeast 44th and Eastern and took quick action.

He was passing through the area when he thought he heard something. Turns out there was a woman trapped and she'd been crying for help for hours.

“I faintly heard what I thought was somebody saying, ‘Help me, help me',” said Cory Scalf.

It was about 1 a.m., when Cory was out checking for gas leaks, he found a woman trapped for hours buried alive between three houses. Cory ran up to nearby police officers.

Officers followed the faint cry to a little pocket carved out in the debris.

She was alive, in pain, but alive.

Officers pulled her out by her arms along with a neighbor Albert.

Albert's deaf and communicates by text, but he knew what to do. He snapped pictures taken just after the rescue.

News 9 learned the woman's name is Linda and was told that her family took her to the hospital. There's no word yet on her current condition.
