Baby Swept Out Of Parents' Arms In Harvey Flooding

August 30, 2017Aug 30, 2017

This is one of Harvey's most tragic stories yet. An infant was swept away from her parents in the rushing flood waters of Hurricane Harvey. As they were climbing to a tree to withstand the 40 foot deep waters, they lost their grip on their daughter and watched as she was swept away. 

"As anyone can imagine, it's been really hard on our guys," said Punkin-Everygreen fire chief Rick Stevens. "They were in about 40 feet of water in a tree top. It took about three hours to get to them." 

"They were trying to get to the tree and hold on with the baby and the current swept the baby away," Stevens explained in this Houston news report. The parents are currently at an undisclosed location and must be in great mourning. As of Tuesday, the baby still has not been found. 

This story comes alongside another tragedy from the storm, where a mother lost her life saving her toddler. Let's pray for the parents who lost their baby daughter, as well as the many others deeply affected by this storm, being called once of the worst floods in U.S. history.
