The story behind that inspiring picture of a human chain in Houston

The story behind that inspiring picture of a human chain in HoustonIn times of crisis, human beings get together and help each other the best way they can.  That's one of the uplifting takeaways from the "catastrophic" Tropical Storm Harvey that poured 19 trillion gallons of rain on Texas, bringing floods and devastation on the southern state. The storm produced the most rain of any tropical storm or hurricane in the history of the lower 48 states. SEE ALSO: Tropical Storm Harvey is the strongest to hit the US in 12 years Among the acts of kindness — for strangers, for animals, for local correspondents — is this inspiring picture of a human chain to help rescue someone trapped in a car in Houston.  The local
ABC channel posted the photo on Twitter, where it went viral, with the caption: "#Harvey has taken a lot, but it will NEVER take our humanity. We have seen so many neighbors helping each other.

Mashable a group of people spotted an elderly man trapped inside his SUV, which was sinking into the water, and were desperate to help him. But there was a catch: they didn't have a rope with them. So they resorted to forming a human chain.  "The people had no rope to get him out so they made a chain holding each other," she said. "They pulled the door open and one gentleman got ahold of him as they held on until they got him safe." Mata said she has no idea of what happened to the man after he was brought to safety.  "There was a cop nearby where they took him to get checked out as he was so cold," she said. "I really wish I knew what happened to him next."

British model denies kidnapping story was a hoax: lawyer

British model denies kidnapping story was a hoax: lawyerBy Sara Rossi MILAN (Reuters) – The lawyer for a 20-year-old British model at the center of an alleged kidnapping in Italy has denied suggestions that the case was a hoax, after local media raised doubts about her story. Some residents told state broadcaster Rai that the couple went to a bar and that she also went shoe shopping with Lukasz Pawel Herba, 30, a British resident born in Poland, before he released her to the British consulate in Milan. “The implication that she was involved (in the plot) – as I read with disgust in some newspapers this morning – is just unimaginable,” Milan-based lawyer Francesco Pesce told Reuters.
