‘Please let this baby breathe’: Dramatic Texas water rescue
Monday, May 1, 2017, – Good Samaritans in Texas worked together to rescue an infant and toddler from an overturned vehicle trapped in a torrent of flood water on Saturday (April 29). The video featured above shows how the dramatic rescue unfolded. With the help of tools and their bare hands, passer-by’s were able to pry open the doors and get inside. The good Samaritans then dragged the children to safety and helped to resuscitate them. The children’s father was also in the vehicle, WFAA reported.The incident took place near Myrtle Springs — about 10 miles north of Canton where a deadly tornado left a path of destruction. According to Phillip Ocheltree, he and his family were leaving their home to escape flooding when their truck “hydroplaned” off the wet road and flipped into a ditch. On his Facebook page, Ocheltree said that his baby son, Marshal, was doing well and that his two-year-old daughter, Addy, was “stable and doing much better,” late on April 30.
