Video: LSU staff members form rescue team for flood victims

-

Over the weekend, it was reported that retired LSU radio announcer Jim Hawthorne and his wife, Carol, were missing after the floods ravaged the state of Louisiana.

Luckily, they were found unharmed, but they aren’t the only ones that needed saving from the deadly waters in Baton Rouge.

To assist these people who have been displaced from their homes and left stranded fighting to stay out of the waters, a few LSU staff members got together and decided to help them out. LSU sports information director Michael Bonnette, his son Peyton, LSU team doctor Brent Bankston, his neighbor Robert Miller and LSU football broadcast spotter Jim Nickel went out on a motor boat and started bringing people to safety.

We didn’t save any lives; we brought people to safety,” Bonnette told The New Orleans Times-Picayune. “It warms your heart to be able to help people like that.”

More than 20,000 people have been left without a home in a three-day span and at least seven people have been killed in what is the worst flooding the city of Baton Rouge has ever seen.

It is nice to see that those associated with the biggest university in the state are willing to help the people that support them to the fullest.
