A cow that was wedged from a tree after floodwaters following Hurricane Ida was rescued from a tree in Florrissant, Louisiana.
In a video shared online by St. Bernard Parish, government employees Tyler Acosta, David Palmer, and Roy Ragan, Sr. cut the tree limbs around the cow to help free the stuck animal. The employees used a chainsaw while standing in water nearly waist-deep. The video that was shared online went viral, garnering over 75,000 views and more than 1,700 shares on Facebook, WKRN.com reported.
Hurricane Ida was one of the most powerful hurricanes to ever hit the U.S. mainland. It has caused massive damage due to the storm’s high winds and flooding.
The Florissant highway in Louisiana is still closed because of high floodwaters brought by Hurricane Ida. In New Orleans, power was restored in several homes and businesses Wednesday.
