A couple in northeastern Mexico waded through floodwater to rescue their puppies after they “lost everything” else in their home to Storm Hanna on July 26.
Betty Vaquera Escandon shared this footage of her parents floating a bucket full of puppies through floodwater in Reynosa, a city in the Mexican state of Tamaulipas.
Escandon said her parents “lost everything” when heavy rains flooded their home, but luckily they “managed to get their babies out.”
“I [recorded the video] more than anything because it gave me a lot of emotion and tenderness to see my parents with all the puppies,” Escandon told Storyful.
Hanna made landfall in southern Texas as a Category 1 hurricane on July 25 before weakening to a tropical storm. Reports said the storm left at least four people dead and six others missing after it swept over parts of Mexico. Credit: Betty Vaquera Escandon via Storyful
