Resourceful 17-Year-Old Saves Herself And Beloved Dog During Kentucky Floods

During times of trials, many people show up and step into bravery. In this video, a resourceful 17-year-old saves herself and her beloved dog during the Kentucky floods.

At the start of this video, it is revealed by a picture that a teen girl was sitting on the roof of a house holding her dog in the midst of the flood. At only 17 years old, Chloe Adams courageously grabbed onto her dog and held her on the roof of their house. 

She had been home all by herself, and the waters rose in the home. Chloe realized that she would need to evacuate. She tried to see if her dog could swim, but she could not. This helped Chloe know to get something to use as a flotation device for the pup.

The dog’s name is Sandy. She has been Chloe’s pet since she was only a young girl. She smartly put Sandy in a plastic container on a couch cushion as a raft and pushed it to her neighbor's house on top of their roof because there was nowhere else left above water. 

The neighborhood is terribly flooded. Chloe’s cousin got to her and the dog a few hours later on a kayak, and Chloe heroically put the dog on the boat first. 

Then, her cousin came back to rescue her. When asked how she feels, Chloe responds, “Blessed.” She and her dog were spared and are thankfully safe and doing well.

This story of bravery and selflessness reminds us that Christ is with us in the storms of life, and He never leaves.

“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.” Isaiah 43:2
