'We just didn't get there fast enough'
Help came from seemingly everywhere the day the tornado struck.
Dustin Ellison ran to the rubble of a convenience store to help get at people trapped in a freezer, which had collapsed.
"It was one big pile of rubble. We knew people had went in the freezer, and we knew that there was no way they had come out," he told CNN's Tapper.
"We just didn't get there fast enough."
One of the victims Ellison and the others found there was 29-year-old Megan Futrell. Another was her infant son, Case.
"She was protecting him," he said.
"Your instinct, when you see that is, for me, I ran towards it. There's probably a lot of people that didn't, or that wouldn't, but not around here."
