Drone Footage Captures Dramatic Hurricane Florence Flood Rescue Near Fayetteville

North Carolina resident John Hansen captured drone footage of the dramatic rescue of a couple caught in flooding from Hurricane Florence near Fayetteville, on September 17.

The couple identified as Michael Morris and Kathy Griffin, who is blind, got into trouble trying to cross a flooded road near Little River in Harnett County. Morris lost his balance and the pair were swept by the fast-moving water towards the road’s guard rail. Three good Samaritans heard the Morris’ call of help and waded into the flood water to carry them to safety.

The fire department arrived later and the couple can be seen thanking the men who rescued them. Credit: John Hansen Photography via Storyful
