This is truly a heroic act.
13 year old Virgil Smith from Dickinson, Texas was hit by Hurricane Harvey. He and his mother were held up in an apartment on the second floor.
Virgil got word that a friend of his needed help because he couldn’t swim. So, he looked for anything he could use to help.
Eventually, he found an air mattress.
He swam over to his buddy’s place, hoisted him on top of the mattress and brought him back to the apartment he was staying in. Virgil didn’t stop there either.
He continued using the air mattress to look for more people in the area that needed rescuing from the floodwaters. He saved 17 people including a women in a wheelchair.
It’s a truly amazing STORY.
