In 1999, a tornado tore Aleah Crago from her mother's arms. A Sheriff's Deputy found the 10 month old 100 yards away, covered in mud.  The touching rescue was caught on dash cam video. 

We reintroduced you to Aleah in February 2012 and learned this 7th grader's dream is to be a storm chaser.  With help from Gary England's team, we gave her a jumpstart on her career. 

Watch the video to see what happened when Aleah teamed up with News 9 Storm Tracker Val Castor on several storm chasing adventures across Oklahoma.
