Fox News correspondent Trace Gallagher rode along on a rescue helicopter plucking families out of submerged homes in Beaumont, Texas.

Gallagher watched as volunteers and National Guardsmen flew over villages that had turned into lakes along the Louisiana border.

He watched as a family was brought aboard one by one, including the family dog.

"What a job," Gallagher said of the rescuers.
