GOOD NEWS A Woman and Her Grandson Clung to a Cross for Five Hours in SC Floods
In a dramatic cell phone video on "Fox and Friends" this morning, we caught a glimpse of an elderly South Carolina woman and her grandson clinging to a huge cross during Sunday's floods.
Clara Gantt was making her weekly Sunday morning drive to church from her Blythewood home when she found herself in the midst of the flood.
Her car was swept from the road into a ditch in front of a small local church.
Her grandson, Travis Catchings, arrived with some rope and was able to force the car door open, but they became stranded as the flooding intensified.
A cross in front of the church had become uprooted and lodged against the car, and the two held onto it in hopes that someone would find them.
“I was literally, after I got out of the car, holding onto the cross. I was clinging to the cross," Gantt said.
They remained that way for five hours until help arrived. During that time, Catchings called his wife thinking it might be the last time he'd ever speak to her.
Gantt suffered a broken ankle and hypothermia but is recovering. Her grandson was unharmed.
"Jesus is my savior," Gantt told WIS-TV. "This story is not about me, this is about what He did to save me."
