Dramatic video from waterlogged eastern Kentucky shows a person being rescued by a helicopter off a roof peeking above floodwaters.
The only parts of houses that could be seen in the video, posted to Facebook by the Wolfe County Search and Rescue Team, were the tops of roofs.
The post said a Wolfe County swift water crew broke through the window of one of the houses to get to a family trapped inside.
The crew got the family to the roof, where a helicopter crew hoisted them to safety. The video shows an 83-year-old woman being rescued.
The National Guard has conducted more than 1,000 rescues through air lifts in eastern Kentucky following the devastating flooding, Gov. Andy Beshear said Sunday.
The governor announced Monday that at least 37 people had died. He’s repeatedly said that the death toll is expected to rise, as dozens remain unaccounted for.
