Father and Son Play with Inflatable Duck Float in Flooded Indiana Yard

Shelbyville, Indiana, resident Michelle Landis captured footage of her husband and son making the most of the local rainy weather by playing with an inflatable duck pool toy in the floodwaters on January 11.

Landis told Storyful she and her family were home watching the rain fill their yard until the water created a puddle.

“Our three-year-old daughter ran out of the back room with her swimsuit on and a picture frame from a Florida trip we took saying ‘I want to go to the beach,’” Landis said. “That sparked my husband’s creative and spontaneous mind to go into action.”

Landis said her husband put air in a duck pool float and the family went outside and enjoyed the rain. The video shows her husband steering the float with a cord while their son rides on it. Credit: Michelle Landis via Storyful
