One evening at 9:30, the Arkansas Search & Rescue team was called to help several people stranded in their vehicles. Heavy rain washed two vehicles off a low water bridge by the Mulberry River close to Oark, Arkansas.

To rescue the occupants, the Arkansas Search & Rescue team members strung a rope from a parked vehicle on dry land to the first stranded vehicle. They helped the stranded people get out by walking along the rope.
The second vehicle was accessed using an inflatable raft. They made four trips while water rushed around them and the vehicles were at high risk of tumbling down stream with their occupants. Praise God, everyone was safely on dry land by 2:30 in the morning.

In addition to this rescue, CAM’s Search & Rescue teams have responded to 31 other incidents so far in 2019. The searches involved recovering drowning victims, searching for dementia patients, and recovering lost children.
