Haskell, a city in Oklahoma (USA), was shaken by severe storms. Earlier this month, Elaine Hendrickson-Parry, her father named Donald, and their dog Luna were at the epicenter of the flood. During this dark period, the animal was carried away by the current.
It only took a few seconds for the life of the Hendrickson family to change. Around 1 a.m. Thursday, May 5, Elaine and her 88-year-old father were forced out onto the front porch with their dog after flooding entered through the front door and spread inside the home. According to FOX23, «The door was locked behind them and they didn’t have a key.»
Elaine and Donald climbed over the low wall to safety. 12-year-old Luna tried to follow them. “She clung to the ledge with her claws,” her mistress explained. Unfortunately, the partially blind and deaf animal was carried away by the current under the frightened glances of its relatives. The latter had no way of catching her in this infernal whirlwind. “I thought I would never see her again,” Elaine said desperately.
The pair remained motionless for hours on end until the water level dropped. When the path was clear, Elaine searched 4 hectares of her father’s land to find her companion. Acquaintances and family members also sent an SOS signal to social networks. Unsuccessful… The moon was never traced.
In the end, suffering and sadness were lost. Around 11 pm after the crash, Elaine, who was standing in the living room, heard a faint bark. Your old furry friend is back, a real «miracle»! She cannot be seen by her own eyes. In the midst of the devastation, a small light literally burned.
“I wonder how far she went and how she was able to find her way back,” Elaine said. The house was destroyed by the flood, but at least now the little family is reunited.
