Kerry Packer, Sitting in a Tree

Flash flooding in Texas this morning caught Kerry Packer off guard. His car was swept down a creek! He escaped the car as it filled with water, and climbed a tree. Packer also got video footage of the incident, which he sent to his wife, who sent it to the local TV station, KVUE. The TV station called Packer during the noon newscast for a live interview about his experience. The news anchors did not know that Packer was still in the tree!

KVUE sent reporters down to Rinard Creek, but they couldn’t get close to Packer because the water was still too deep. They recorded his eventual rescue by helicopter. Packer is said to be fine now. -via reddit
