Neighbors said a girl’s parents emerged from the wreckage frantically screaming for help. Their daughter was on life support and now stuck inside.
“They were screaming. His wife was hysterical. They were already traumatized from doing that ‘Wizard of Oz’ trick,” Heirsch said.
“All the men in the neighborhood ran towards the house. The mother, they brought her to me. I just held her,” Nerissa Ledet told the newspaper. “I tried to console her. I said, ‘You know they’re going to take her out.’ »
Firefighters quickly arrived and carried her away in a blanket. St. Bernard Parish President Guy McInnis described the rescue, saying she is in hospital and “doing well”.
