Many parts of Australia are under such a amount of water. The victim of the flood is Queensland state and many of the volunteers are moving to Queensland, Brisbane to help the victims and creating lot of heroic stories.
13 year old Jordan Rice could not swim, but when his his 10 year old brother Blake became trapped due to the floods he quickly insisted that Blake be rescued first. Because of the flood water swept through Toowoomba earlier this week the Rice family car was caught up in it. 43 year old Donna was soon trapped in the care with her two boys. Local builder Mr McErlean attempted to move the car. However with the flood water rising at the rate of 8 inches in 10 seconds he could not able to do so.
Warren McErlean tried to push the car back. He nearly lost his life as he was swept away. After sometime Chris has been called and he rescued McErlean and the pair of them tried to rescue the family again. With a rope tied around their waist the pair tried once again.
When they reached the car the elder brother of Blake Jordan made sure that they rescued his younger brother. By the time Blake was in rescued, the car had been washed away. As Warren attempted to wade out again the rope snapped, the car turned over and it was washed away. Both Jordan and his mum perished.
Jordan is quite rightly being hailed a hero by his father. Obviously the two men who saved Blake and tried to save Jordan and Donna are heroes also. What a sad tragedy though.
