A CNN reporter and crew rescued an elderly couple in Texas


A CNN reporter and crew rescued an elderly couple, who were trapped in their house, in Dickinson, TX on Sunday.

CNN's Ed Lavandera said they were about to leave the area when they heard a woman call for help.Volunteer Austin Seth, CNN correspondent Ed Lavandera, and CNN producer Jason Morris responded quickly when they saw an elderly couple in need of help.

Dickinson has been hit hard by the flooding of Hurricane Harvey. Earlier on Sunday, at least 25 nursing home residents were rescued from rising waters at La Vita Bella nursing home, CNN reported.

"They were up to their waist,” Galveston County Commissioner Ken Clark told CNN. “If they were in a wheelchair they could have been up to their neck.”

Texas officials confirmed on Sunday that at least two people have died and 14 have been injured by the hurricane. Residents expect 10-20 inches rain in the next five days, according to CNN.
