Natural disasters are known for catching many people off guard. You can never anticipate just how extreme the outcome is going to be as well as the many unexpected and possibly life-threatening situations you will find yourself or a loved one in.
Hurricane Harvey was a prime example of a natural disaster that ultimately took many states (mainly Texas) by surprise. With over 125 billion in damage, nobody could prepare for the widespread destruction it was going to have on buildings, homes, and the lives of millions.
Even though it was an extremely dark time for many, it was incredible to see civilians joining efforts, sharing resources, not giving up, and saving lives. By banning together, they were able to conquer many difficult tasks that would've been nearly impossible to conquer alone.
In this video, you will witness brave rescuers who come together to save the life of a dog who is trapped in high flood waters, and minutes from being swept away. Wearing a life vest that is attached to a rescue rope, they send one of the responders into the raging water while the rest anticipate the outcome of the rescue.
Barreling through the rapids, the rescuer quickly approaches the struggling canine and immediately fastens his arms around the pup. Losing no time, everyone on land begins to pull both dog and rescuer through the flood waters. With great success, they're able to remove the rescuer and dog from the life-threatening situation. Thankfully, everyone is safe and sound. They banned together and we able to accomplish so much more than if one lone ranger had set out do it on his own. It's a beautiful rescue that you will not want to miss.
