Although natural disasters often brings about fear and chaos, they can also bring out the best of people. Many times, residents become rescuers as they try to save those in their community.

Sometimes, though, these rescue efforts go awry, and rescuers need the help of another good Samaritan to get them out of a sticky situation.

This is the case as Hurricane — now “Tropical Storm” — Florence has made its way to the coast of North Carolina.

With streets flooded and rendered impassible, help is needed to save those that were unable to get out before the storm hit.

One rescue team decided to aid those in need by taking to one of the toughest vehicles on the road today – a Humvee.

Humvees are notoriously rugged vehicles that can traverse the toughest of terrain, even flooded waters. However, one group of rescuers overestimated just how far they could take their Humvee down a flooded street.

A team that included a Marine and two first responders used their Humvee to begin a trek to save those in need.



But as water rushed up the side of their vehicle, they soon needed some help of their own.

Thankfully for these rescuers, there were some good Samaritans watching nearby as they delivered supplies across a flooded creek.

As the Humvee went deeper and deeper under the water, the good Samaritans rushed over to free the men from their flooded military vehicle.

They arrived by boat and were able to get the team of rescuers out of their life-threatening situation quickly.

The rescuers, not deterred by the loss of their Humvee to the ravishing flood waters, even went back to the vehicle to collect their belongings.

It is a miracle that these good Samaritans were close by and able to save the rescue team from being trapped in the flood waters or drowning.

It seems when a storm of this proportion hits, there are those heroes among us that can and do help.

Thanks to these good Samaritans, the rescue team was safe and hopefully able to continue helping others.
