KELLY, NORTH CAROLINA (WFTV) – A family of five and their pet dog are safe after a team from Wild Florida Air Boat Rides rescued them over the weekend from flood waters brought by Hurricane Florence.

The family, which included a mother who is eight months pregnant, was clinging to tree branches in chest-deep waters.

They had been there for hours until they were found by the Wild Florida workers, who volunteer use of their airboats to help rescue residents after devastating hurricanes.

A father, an eight-month pregnant woman, a 4-year-old child, an 8-year-old-child, their uncle and a dog had been stuck in the water since 4 a.m.

Their lives were saved from a storm that has already killed more than a dozen people.
