Tropical Storm Harvey’s still wreaking havoc throughout southeast Texas (while also moving into Louisiana), and evangelist Joel Osteen is still defending his reluctance to immediately shelter evacuees. Yet one CNN reporter did not hesitate when confronted with a life-threatening situation that unfolded right behind him on Wednesday morning in Beaumont, Texas. Drew Griffin and his crew were beginning to cover Harvey’s ongoing impact when a truck slipped down a ravine and into high water. Immediately, they sprang into action to pull the driver out of his vehicle to safety.
