At least 18 people were reportedly rescued from a flooded nursing home in Dickinson, Texas, on August 27, after Tropical Storm Harvey hit the area.

This photograph shows elderly people from the La Vita Bella facility sitting in waist-deep floodwater.

Timothy J. McIntosh shared the image, but his mother-in-law and owner of the nursing home, Trudy Lampson, took the photo, according to CNN.

McIntosh later tweeted that the National Guard and Galveston emergency crews rescued those from the nursing home.
