Plaza Towers students reunite with teachers

The first funeral was held Thursday morning for the youngest victims of Monday's deadly tornado.

Nine-year-old Antonia Candelaria was remembered as a "beautiful young lady" who had the "sweetest, most gentle and loving spirit."

She was one of seven children who died at the Plaza Towers Elementary School.

A school that has become one of the emotional focal points of the tornado.
And today - that school community came together as students were reunited with the teachers who saved their lives.

Our Ed Lavandera is OutFront with today's reunion.
