In times of natural disasters, there are countless stories of people helping people. And that is indeed the case in Baton Rouge, La., an area that has been inundated by flooding in recent days.
Case in point: When LSU communications director Michael Bonnette learned that former Tigers radio play-by-play voice Jim Hawthorne and his wife, Carol, had not been heard from for nearly 24 hours amid the flooding in that city and beyond, he opted to get into a boat to get to Hawthorne’s home, ESPN’s Mark Schlabach reported.
Thing is, someone got to Hawthorne first, so Bonnette’s mission changed. Here is Bonnette taking a selfie in a boat on a road where it should be very, very dry.
