Texas woman, daughter rescued from high water; only child survives

The tragedy happened when the mother, 41, got stuck in the floods in Beaumont as she tried to flee in her auto.

The child was later found holding onto the floating woman when a police and fire-rescue team in a boat caught up to them a half-mile downstream, Penisson said. The name of the child, who remained hospitalized Wednesday in stable condition, was not released.

The mother was unresponsive and efforts to revive her failed. Rescuers pulled them into the boat just before they would have gone under a railroad trestle where the water was so high that the boat could not have followed.

The water was so high, Riley said, that they required the help of a resident who allowed them to load the woman and the girl into his truck in order to reach the waiting ambulance, she said.

The host says that he tried to get an explanation but was thrown around for years, resulting in him hiring an external auditor. In a report by CNN , it was reported that Nye is allegedly owed a gross amount of $9 million for his work on the show.

The child was responsive but suffering from hypothermia.

The Beaumont Police Department has identified the woman as 41-year-old Colette Sulcer. A police officer drowned on Sunday, and six members of a family, including four children, lost their lives after their van was overwhelmed by floodwaters.

"Water was up to the trestle and first responders would not have been able to save the child if they had floated under it", police said in the statement.

Earlier in the week this image of a SWAT officer carrying a mother and her sleeping baby to safety went viral.

Harvey has drawn comparisons with Hurricane Katrina, which devastated New Orleans 12 years ago, killing 1,800 people and causing an estimated $108 billion in damage.

The identities of the mother and daughter were being withheld, pending the notification of relatives.

At least 18 people have now been killed by Harvey since Friday, when it made landfall in Texas as a Category 4 hurricane. The death toll is expected to rise significantly once floodwaters recede in the coming days and weeks. Harvey has since weakened to a tropical storm, moved back out onto the Gulf of Mexico then made landfall again. The storm has now moved into southwest Louisiana, according to latest reports.
