Kentucky Rescue Crews Save An 83-Year-Old Woman & Her Family Trapped Inside Flooded Attic


Wild video footage circulated of rescue teams in Wolfe County, Kentucky, rescuing five people trapped in an attic as catastrophic flooding swept across the eastern portion of the state, the authorities said New York Post.

In the footage, you can see the rescue team on a boat while a Kentucky National Guard helicopter hovers directly overhead.

The technicians had to enter the building by breaking a window inside to save the family of five, and they were rescued one by one through the roof.

One of the family members rescued was an 83-year-old woman, although no further details about the other four were released.

Gov. Andy Beshear said the death toll has risen to more than 30, although hundreds have still not been found.

Parts of eastern Kentucky received 8 to 10½ inches of rainfall in just 48 hours last week, and up to 4 inches in some parts of the state on Sunday alone. More rain is expected this week.

Beshear made it very clear in an interview how devastating the coming weeks would be for eastern Kentucky NBC’s “Meet the press:”

“We’ll be finding bodies for weeks. Many of them swept hundreds of yards, maybe a quarter mile and up, from where they got lost.”

This is absolutely devastating news for the people of eastern Kentucky, and our thoughts and prayers go out to each and every one of them.

But also a big thank you to the first responders who were willing to risk their lives to save others. Kentucky Rescue Crews Save An 83-Year-Old Woman & Her Family Trapped Inside Flooded Attic
