'Water was over my head': Kentucky man rescues 7 from floods

by News Update

Nathan Day was up early helping his son get ready for work when he received a message from a neighbor asking him to save her grandchildren from the rising floodwaters.
Day, a former coal miner who lives in Hindman, Knott County, said he was unaware of what was happening in the region until he received the message saying the children needed help getting out of their house. Day talks to Anderson Cooper about how he managed to rescue 5 children and 2 of his former school teachers from floodwaters without a boat or proper equipment. #ac360 #andersoncooper #CNN

Is there a "civilian version" of The Congressional Medal Of Honor?
This guy should have one.

ALENA August 2, 2022 - 10:05 AM

This is unbelievable! Every year , year after year these incidences always sets the federal spending back. If it is a known fact flooding is likely to happen in this area the government should help to make it mandatory to move. So , there is No Life’s missing or injured. If there has not been guaranteed ,”New ideals” for the type of construction that will save people life’s in these areas that will handle catastrophic weather then why rebuild in the “same area” ? Would it not make sense to build were there is less likely to be hurricanes and tornados. It is think more intelligible.

I wonder if Senator Paul will vote against disaster relief for his state unless it’s paid for 🤔

Tini904 August 2, 2022 - 10:11 AM

I wonder how many of the survivors are still in denial of science.

Meanwhile back in the studio, Jeffrey Toobin has a firm grip on other news!

Saul Dean August 2, 2022 - 10:15 AM

Those of you who disregard climate change, I got message for you, these floods are not coincidence, is almost a worldwide thing from Africa, America, even Dubai, humans are destroying the natural world without replacing it with anything, we cut trees, oil rigs, sand, gold, all these things. What do we expect.

PUAlum August 2, 2022 - 10:15 AM

It's so amazing how generous, brave and loving these Kentuckians are. Praying for all of them….and for the area's recovery. And wish i had neighbors like that.
(well….maybe i do. hope i don't need to find out!).

Cheryl Sibson August 2, 2022 - 10:16 AM

poleshift August 2, 2022 - 10:18 AM

Hay Biden, explain how oil is causing massive volcanic eruptions & earthquakes in diverse places? It's called a poleshift and man has nothing to do with it

Trump 2020 August 2, 2022 - 10:20 AM

This video gives credibility that we're going into a poleshift.

Cicada 3301 August 2, 2022 - 10:21 AM

People who doubt america !!! This is why america is the greatest country in the world !! Everyday heroes and their tenacity!!1

poleshift August 2, 2022 - 10:22 AM

GOVs will try to rob you for all you have & meanwhile all the floods, earthquakes & volcanic eruptions are caused by the impending poleshift

rickruiz1962 August 2, 2022 - 10:23 AM

My bad for being a total ass. But these people deny climate change, and believe in the power of God.
Why did God allow this to happen?
Not enough prayers.
I sound like a dick. But these people attack liberals. They consider us to be " pedophiles, Satan's people, they support fetuses before actual living children, people etc. I feel for them, but they don't care about others.

Amin Hanoi Jiminian Wilmot August 2, 2022 - 10:23 AM

A true heroe.

qanon pub August 2, 2022 - 10:24 AM

You have been lied to from cradle to grave. The establishment knows all the flooding is caused by a poleshift

Trump 2020 August 2, 2022 - 10:25 AM

Poleshifts occurs every 3,600 years. Man has nothing to do with the warming or the flooding. But they do want as much money as they can get
