He reached out his hand for help, bro!!




Do I know that this poor guy was swept away into the deluge?

I guess he could have grabbed onto something before he was swept a few more hundred feet down the street, but it certainly doesn't look that way.

This was a cry for help:

Anyway, I'm tired of focusing on braindead people who live only to get the perfect shot instead of helping their fellow man, so here's more on the floods hitting the earthquake-stricken region:

From the AP:

Floods caused by torrential rains hit two Turkish provinces that were devastated by last month's catastrophic earthquake, killing at least 14 people and increasing the misery for thousands who were left homeless, officials said Wednesday.

Rescue teams were still searching for five people reported missing in three locations, Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu said.

Soylu said 12 people were killed by the floods in the southeastern Sanliurfa province while two others died in neighboring Adiyaman province.

In Adiyaman, victims drowned after surging waters swept away a container home sheltering a family of earthquake survivors, HaberTurk television reported.

The victims in Sanliurfa included five Syrian nationals whose bodies were found inside a flooded basement apartment and two other people who died inside a van that was trapped at an underpass.

Television footage from Sanliurfa showed flood waters surging along a street and sweeping away cars, as well as a man being rescued from the underpass.

Several people were evacuated from a drenched camp where earthquake survivors were sheltering in tents. Patients were also evacuated from a hospital, HaberTurk reported.

Turkey is a hot mess right now. They are gonna need a lot of help and a lot of prayer.

I'll leave you with one story of bravery:

There's always people willing to help when everything hits the fan. Be one of those people.
