"Make A Chain, Guys"- Amazing Rescue
"Make a chain, guys!"
Does anyone remember this line from the movie, "It's A Wonderful Life"? George Bailey, as a child, saved his brother Harry when Harry had fallen into an icy pond. He and his friends formed a chain by holding hands together they could reach Harry. They saved him!
On the news today, I thought of this when we were shown an amazing sight from this weekend in Panama City, Florida. EIGHTY people formed a chain to rescue a family who were caught in a dangerous riptide. (Two boys, aged 8 and 11 were first caught in the riptide and the rest of the family tried to rescue them but became trapped themselves.) The authorities wanted to wait for a boat but one woman saw the danger of this and shouted for a human chain. And some of those who came forward to be a part of the chain could not even swim!
All were saved! Let me repeat this...all were saved!
Best Story of the day.
