Stories like this coming out of Texas are absolutely heartbreaking.
A Texas woman has died trying to save herself and her young daughter from floods in the aftermath of Harvey — but the little girl survived, according to authorities.
A police statement said the Beaumont woman pulled her vehicle into a theater parking lot about 3:35 p.m. Tuesday, when it got stalled in high water. The woman then took her daughter out of the car — before they were swept about a half-mile away into a rain-swollen drainage canal.
Two Beaumont police officers and two fire-rescue divers in a rubber boat spotted the mother floating with the child, who was holding onto her mother. Officers pulled the child and the mother into the boat.
The child was responsive but suffering from hypothermia. The mother was unresponsive and efforts to revive her failed. The child was hospitalized in stable condition.
