Teen Swims To Rooftop With Pet Dog As Flood Hits US Town

A teenager in the United States is winning the hearts on social media for saving her dog’s life during the flash floods in Kentucky.

A photo of Chloe Adams cradling her dog while sitting on the roof of a house covered by floodwaters is going viral. Many areas of Kentucky were hit by flash floods triggered by heavy rain on Thursday, in which 16 people were killed.

Ms. Adams, 17, was alone at her home with her trusted companion, Sandy, the dog she’s had since she was a toddler. According to CNN, the nightmarish rain quickly overwhelmed the drains, and the water started bursting through the kitchen tiles and surrounded her house. “There was water as far as I could see,” she told the outlet. “I had a full-blown panic attack.”

But she rescued not only herself but also Sandy by putting the dog in a floating container and swimming to a nearby rooftop. She waited for hours before help could come.

Her father, Terry Adams, shared a post about her safety on Facebook on Friday, calling her a “hero.” While sharing a picture of the teenager surrounded by floodwater, he wrote, “My daughter is safe and whole tonight. She saved her dog by putting her in a container that would float and then swam with her to a neighboring rooftop.”

“She waited hours until she could be rescued. She is a hero. I love you, Chloe. You are simply amazing. Thank you, Larry; words are not enough. We lost everything today…everything except what matters most,” he added.

The post has received over 10,000 likes and around 18,000 shares on Facebook so far. Moreover, numerous users flooded the comment section appreciating Ms. Adams’ bravery.
