Tuesday during CNN’s coverage of the flooding from Hurricane Harvey in Houston, one survivor got emotional about the network broadcasting in the shelter.
Partial transcript as follows:
REPORTER: Let me introduces to Danielle here. You just arrived. Share with us how you were rescued.
DANIELLE: Some guys had called our phone and asked where we were. We were waiting for police for, like, 36 hours and they never came. We were waiting at the home. We did the white flag and everything. Nobody came. But then somebody called the phone after we decided to leave the house. We walked to the gas station with the kids, and they picked up us. We had been there five days with no food, no lights, and nobody came. Like, nobody came.
REPORTER: You’re with your children. We heard stories of mothers trying to save their children from the rushing waters. Can you tell us how that was for you?
