DEVELOPING STORY: As many as 50 workers are feared dead after a tornado slammed into a candle factory in Mayfield, Kentucky.
One of the workers posted a heart-wrenching video begging for help as she was trapped in the rubble. Her coworkers can be heard weeping, screaming and moaning in the background. Watch below.
“I don’t know who’s watching,” a woman is heard saying. “We got hit by a hurricane. I’m at work in Mayfield and we are trapped.”
“Please y’all, give us some help. We are at the candle factory in Mayfield. Please, please. Y’all! Please send us some help. Somebody please send us some help, we are trapped,” she said. “The wall is stuck on me,’ she added. ‘Nobody can get to us, y’all, we can’t move.”
The worker later posted a video stating that she had been freed from the rubble and is okay.
