Indians pitcher makes plea for help as aunt’s Texas home floods
CLEVELAND– Indians relief pitcher Nick Goody took to Twitter early Wednesday morning with a heartbreaking post.
As flooding persisted in Houston, Texas and its surrounding areas, many were left stranded in their homes by Hurricane Harvey’s wrath.
“If any1 is in the Beaumont/Nederland area and has a boat. My aunts house is flooding. And my family is stuck,” Goody wrote at 1:30 a.m. in the now-deleted tweet. He included his aunt’s address and phone number.
People quickly started retweeting the post and tagging the accounts of rescue groups.
At about 8:30 a.m., Goody posted an update. His family was rescued by a group of volunteers called the Cajun Navy. It was founded in 2016 during major flooding in Louisiana, and consists of mostly bass boats and air boats.
