Senior Citizens From Dickinson Rescued From Waist-High Waters
From ABC13 Houston, a heart-breaking photo was posted online of senior citizens trapped in their nursing home in Dickinson, Texas and the water was up to their waist line.
Timothy McIntosh, whose mother-in-law owns the nursing home called La Vita Bella, tweeted the photo on Sunday to get help and it went viral.
A member of the National Guard who asked to keep his identity private said:
The house was pretty much underwater.
Emergency Management Coordinator for the city of Dickinson David Popoff told Chron:
The Mayor issued an evacuation warning for low-lying areas and people that were medically fragile and for some reason they didn’t evacuate.
