After a horrific tornado tore through the Oklahoma City area on Monday, killing 24 people and injuring 233, with the casualty toll likely to rise.
The loss of life and catastrophic level of destruction in Moore, Okla., brought countless people to tears - TV reporter Lance West among them.
West, a reporter for KFOR, was in Moore and confirmed on live TV that there were children inside Plaza Towers Elementary School when the Oklahoma tornado hit.
West lamented the massive damage and "absolute chaos" in Moore.
"I've never seen anything like this in my 18 years covering tornadoes in Oklahoma City. This is without question the most horrific ... I've never seen ..."
He then trailed off, and for very good reason, broke down.
