The Erath County Volunteer Fire Department and EMS rescued 14 people including five children in a daring drive through rising waters of the Bosque River Thursday afternoon.
Donning high water rescue gear volunteers made their way across a 120-yard wide stretch of County Road 454 (sewage treatment plant road) expecting to find only four people, but instead found 14. Rescuers were required to make three trips across the treacherous stretch of water. Flash photographer Russell Huffman was shooting flooding photos when he saw the situation and called the Erath County Sheriff’s Department and then documented the rescue.
