The story behind the horrifying photo that helped rescue elderly at nursing home almost under water

You’ve probably seen the horrifying viral photo, and maybe even shared it.

Here is the story behind it:

From the Galveston County Daily News:

Fifteen senior citizens were rescued from a Dickinson assisted living community, hours after a viral photo showing them sitting in waist-deep water went viral.

Dickinson emergency management coordinator David Popoff confirmed that 18 people were rescued from La Vita Bella, an assisted living facility in the 3500 block of Oak Drive in Dickinson.

Popoff confirmed the rescue by phone to The Daily News at noon on Sunday, hours after a post on Twitter showing at least eight people, and one cat, sitting in a room with water up to their waists.
