Craig Williams tried calling 911 to get his brother help, but emergency workers were overwhelmed with calls. They couldn’t help him or his Marine brother, Chris.
When he went online and checked social media, he saw many tweets about the storm. But one caught his eye: a photo of a flooded neighborhood.
He learnedone of the houses in the photoishis brother’s the one with a window with one shutter.
He quickly contacted the man who posted the photo, which was taken with a drone. Luckily, the stranger responded, and was willing to help! Using the drone, he located FEMA workers in the area and guided them to Chris’ home.
Thankfully, he was rescued in no time and he and his dog Lana were brought to safety.
