How did they survive?

![click on photos below to enlarge]

Joe Elias and Mark Hinds were in a Quonset to the left of a shed that this truck was in before the twister struck. The truck was moved five feet to the right. Both structures were gone and Elias was under the truck when it was over. Hinds was deposited farther back behind the pile on the left at the edge of the field.
Notice the debris packed up against the passenger side of the truck, the direction where Elias had been prior to the destruction, and also the long pipes and debris against the driver's side of the truck.
How did these guys survive?
