Mother dies trying to save her daughter while escaping from Hurricane Harvey

Mother dies trying to save her daughter while escaping from Hurricane Harvey

"The mother did the best she could to keep her child up over the water. The child was responsive but suffering from hypothermia", they continued.

The hurricane has since been downgraded to a tropical storm and has made landfall for a second time in the neighbouring state of Louisiana.

Rescuers pulled the duo into the boat and tried to revive the mother. The child was hospitalized in stable condition.

Two police officers and two fire rescue workers who were searching for victims in an inflatable boat spotted the woman's body being carried downstream from the parking lot. Rescuers pulled them into the boat just before they would have gone under a railroad trestle where the water was so high that the boat could not have followed.

According to reports, she got out of the auto and grabbed her daughter in an effort to save their lives, but got swept into the canal and drifted about half a mile from her vehicle.

Beaumont officers and firefighters rushed to rescue a woman and her young daughter who were swept away in a canal, but only the girl survived.

Department spokesperson Officer Carol Riley told People that the woman "absolutely saved the child's life".

Riley said that Sulcer's family is devastated by her death, but "counting their blessings when they can".

"Water was up to the trestle and first responders would not have been able to save the child if they had floated under it", police said late Tuesday in the statement. A bystander helped load the mother and daughter into his truck and transported them to a waiting ambulance.

"First responders took turns performing CPR until they could get her to an ambulance", officials said.

The identities of the mother and daughter were being withheld, pending the notification of relatives.

Earlier in the week this image of a SWAT officer carrying a mother and her sleeping baby to safety went viral.

The New York Times reported Wednesday that the death toll from the storm had risen to 30 confirmed and suspected flood-related deaths.
