RENTON, Wash. -- There were touching moments in Renton Thursday as the Seahawks took time out of practice to greet some of the survivors of the Oso landslide. And it appears the youngest survivor had them wrapped around his little finger.

Baby Duke, the 23-week-old slide survivor, was a magnet for the Seahawks players as they lined up to get a look at the little guy.

His mom, Amanda, was close by. She still gets around in a wheelchair after suffering broken legs and a broken arm in the slide. But she said she was definitely up for the occasion.

"Just watching them during the games is awesome, but to actually be here and meeting them is unreal," she said.

"It's something you don't do every day, so it was a unique experience. It was pretty cool. I'm glad we came out," said her 

A close-up of Russell Wilson and company as they run through the motions is anything but routine for them. They're more than just super stars to Amanda and the others, especially after the Hawks' trip to Oso shortly after the slide.

"It shows a lot of their character and how amazing they are, and it meant a lot. And I know it meant a lot to everybody in our community," said Amanda.
