Florida Deputy Saves American Flag Battered by Irma's Winds
Dramatic footage shows a Florida sheriff's deputy saving an American flag that was being battered in Hurricane Irma's powerful winds.
The video, which was posted to the Martin County Sheriff's Office, shows Lt. Danny Cunningham running from his car into strong winds and rain to retrieve the beaten flag from a pole.
"I couldn't watch it get blown apart," Cunningham reportedly said.
Just two weeks ago, a Texas police officer braved Hurricane Harvey's winds to take down an American flag before it was whipped away.
"While some dishonor and desecrate her, APPD Ofc. Jack McCarty will stop at nothing to honor and save her. #GodBlessAmerica #HurricaneHarvey," the Aransas Pass Police Department posted on Facebook.
