It’s likely to be one of the images from the Hurricane Harvey flooding that will stick in people’s memories for a long time. Senior citizens from the La Vita Bella Nursing Home, many of whom were confined to wheelchairs, were photographed sitting in waist-deep water awaiting rescue.

The owner of the nursing home snapped the photo and sent it to her daughter, and the daughter’s husband posted it to Twitter seeking help.
Twitter came through, and the 15 patients were rescued.
And, now, a new photo has come out, showing the seniors happy, dry, warm, and safe.
