Drone Locates Man in Flood for 10 Hours


A drone helped rescue a Montgomery County man who was stranded in his vehicle for about ten hours near the Verdigris Riveron Wednesday. Robert Harriman of rural Cherryvale was rescued by a boat a half-mile from the road by the Neodesha Fire Department. They were assisted by the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks.


Harriman was removed from his vehicle and treated by Independence EMS and transported to an area hospital. Video footage from the drone owned by Micah Songer of Neodesha shows the vehicle nearly engulfed in the flood waters, more than halfway up the front windshield, showing very little space left inside. The drone pinpointed his location which was relayed to rescuers.


Richard George, interim sheriff of Montgomery County Sheriff's Department reminds all drivers to NOT DRIVE through flooded roadways.
