4 Rescue Volunteers Reportedly Missing in Houston

Four volunteer rescuers in Houston have been reported missing by their family members after a swollen bayou pushed their small boat into a utility pole. Three other men from the original group of seven were found hanging on trees and had survived electrocution. The men were saving neighbors in the Northshore area, according to multiple reports. “My husband has been (in) the Wallisville and Normandy helping people get out of the houses,” Perla Jaquez posted on Facebook on Monday evening. “Now we can't locate him or his brothers. ... We are all very concerned. ... (It’s) getting dark.” The missing men were identified by local TV stations as Benjamin Vizueth, 31; Yahir Vizueth, 25; George Lopez, 31; and Gustavo Rodriguez Hernandez, 40.
