TEGNA’s CBS affiliate KHOU Houston Reporter Tiffany Craig and Photographer Greg Ramirez helped rescue children during flooding. They were covering the flooding on September 19 when they stopped to help an SUV stranded in flood waters, with a mom and two children inside. Ramirez pulled out a little girl and a baby wearing only a diaper from the car. Another passerby pulled the car to dry ground.

“I’m like a proud mom. My KHOU11 team ALWAYS ready to help OUR community. We live here too. Neighbors help neighbors. #ThisIsJournalism Thank you Photojournalist G-Ram & @TiffanyKHOU," tweeted News Director Sally Ramirez.
