New Orleans Man Rows to Neighbor's Rescue After Heavy Rain Floods Roadways

A New Orleans man came to his stranded neighbor’s rescue and rowed her to a notary to get some important documents notarized in a timely fashion, video from June 10 shows.

Roads across New Orleans, Louisiana, were submerged in floodwater after more than five inches of rain fell in the area on June 10, the National Weather Service reported.

Lenee Crowley shared this video of her husband rowing a neighbor in their canoe to a nearby home on General Haig Street in New Orleans.

In a conversation with the recorder, the woman in the canoe said that she desperately needed documents notarized for a proposal for a community mass feeding initiative, and that thanks to Crowley and her husband, the documents were ready “just in the nick of time.”
