Harvey horror: Toddler found clinging to drowned mother

Harvey horror: Toddler found clinging to drowned mother”

Authorities said they are not going to release the mother's and child's names until family members and friends are notified. The mother was unresponsive and efforts to revive her failed.

Colette Sulcer, 41, and her child - who has not been identified - were driving in their hometown of Beaumont when their vehicle got stuck in high water from Hurricane Harvey.

A toddler is in stable condition in Texas after she was found clinging to her drowned mother's body in a flooded canal during Tropical Storm Harvey.

A pair of Beaumont cops and firefighters in a rubber boat spotted the child desperately clinging to her mother and grabbed the two before they disappeared under a trestle.

"All information about these sites are classified", said Iranian government spokesman Mohammad Baqer Nobakht, Reuters reported. During the election campaign, he threatened to rip up the agreement, calling it " the worst deal ever ".

According to reports, she got out of the auto and grabbed her daughter in an effort to save their lives, but got swept into the canal and drifted about half a mile from her vehicle.

A witness reported seeing the woman try to walk to safety when the swift current of a flooded drainage canal next to the parking lot swept them both away.

The 3-year-old girl whose mother died saving her from a flood in Beaumont, Texas, on Tuesday is "doing well" and "reunited with her family", officials tell PEOPLE.

Police spokeswoman Carol Riley told People that the mother "absolutely saved the child's life". "Everybody at the hospital and the officers just fell in love with her", Riley said.

William, 35, and Harry, 32, stood looking at photos and floral tributes left for their mother at the Golden Gates of the palace. Upon her death in 1997, a sea of flowers, cards and gifts were left by mourners at the gates of Kensington Palace.

"They were in the water for quite some time", she said. Water was up to the trestle and first responders would not have been able to save the child if they'd floated under it.

The emergency responders began performing CPR on the daughter until a neighbour used his pick-up truck to transport them to a nearby ambulance, Mr Pennison added.

A courageous mother saved her three-year-old daughter from drowning in the Texas floods - but sacrificed her own life in the process.

Earlier in the week this image of a SWAT officer carrying a mother and her sleeping baby to safety went viral. The death toll is expected to rise significantly once floodwaters recede in the coming days and weeks.
