WATCH: Jet Ski Pulls Family on Boat to Safety in Houston
Rescue and recovery efforts are ongoing in Houston and the surrounding areas in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.
Fox 26 was on the scene in the Riverstone community in Fort Bend County as volunteers and authorities helped residents caught in the floodwaters.
Dramatic footage shows one rescuer using a jet ski to pull a jon boat full of family members.
"A lot of people, once they're making it to shore, we're seeing some smiles and being just happy being out of this water," Fox 26 reporter Ruben Dominguez said. "Thanks to the work of Texas Parks and Wildlife, the game wardens, Missouri City and civilians who are all pitching in, these folks are being rescued. They're coming to safety, they're coming to dry land."
