CNN's Ed Lavandera and his producer Jason Morris said later on CNN, 'at the very last moment, we were on our way out and heard a cry for help'
They stopped and rescued an elderly couple. The woman had Alzheimer's and the man (seen here in this CNN video) is probably around 90 years old.
Had they been passed over, they would have been in waist deep water --- and very soon, in pitch darkness
Props to Ed Lavandera and his producer.
