“An elderly woman’s legs disappeared under waist-deep water from Hurricane Harvey as the storm’s flooding flowed into the La Vita Bella Nursing Home on Sunday in Dickinson, TX.
The unidentified woman wasn’t the only one submerged in the rising waters pouring into the nursing home. A now-viral photo first shared on Twitter showed at least six other women and a cat trapped in the same green-colored water that filled the room.
Kim and Tim McIntosh, whose mother owns the assisted living center, received the photo around 8 a.m. Sunday. “Then no more contact,” they said in an email.
The McIntosh’s decided to post the photo on Twitter shortly after, pleading with emergency services for help. “We thought the situation was dire,” they said.”*
