Young animal loving man died in Houston floodwaters trying to save his sister’s Maine Coon cat — 10 Comments

  1. Really a sad and scary story. I did not know that metal in our bodies could react to live wires. So tragic. Andrew was an angel to try to help his sister’s cat. And scary. (How many of us have metal in our bodies? I have stainless steel screws in my previously broken foot.)

  2. I have a friend who does emergency training I’m going to mention having people turn off their own electric if possible when leaving home during an evacuation. Even if you didn’t evac if you had water in your home you should disable electric if possible. If you had time you could also easily turn off your natural gas.
    Her cat should have had a carrier.

  3. How sad! It seems that the caring ones suffer the most. Don’t be too hard on Andrew’s sister as panic can set in during an emergency, and the electrical box is usually in the back of the house–in the opposite direction of escape. From sad experience I know that cats hide and are fearful during an emergency. BTW, my youngest son lives near Addicks reservoir in Houston, but fortunately was not flooded because the dam held on the south side.

    • Just what I was thinking…it’s the caring people who die trying. But what I was thinking about the sister is…. how is it that a cat owner doesn’t own a carrier??!
