We are hearing about some amazing rescues during the horrible flooding that has been going on, and this is no exception. A man on Hwy 16 in Amite was clinging to a tree all night, trapped by rushing water, before he was rescued by first responders in a helicopter.

Evidently, the tree that he was hanging on to fell over, and he was stuck in the middle of the road in rushing water. Very chilling, but we are so happy help came to get him out. Watch the video below.
