VIDEOS: The tornado in Norman on Sunday night caused serious damage to buildings. First responders had to get creative when they saved several people at a postal service training center. Power lines had people trapped inside the building so a deputy had to think quickly to get patients out. "We came up with the idea, that we should load up my car, that way we can get medical attention to patients inside the building," said Deputy Jacob Overling with the Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office. Norman got hit by a tornado on Sunday night, injuring people in the postal service training facility. Two people were seriously hurt. Overling and the medics didn’t have much time. Body camera video showed him helping paramedics get the patient in the cruiser.
