Former "Bachelor" Borrows A Boat And Heads To Help In Houston

posted by Otis - The O Show - 

Many celebrities are touched by the tragedy in Houston with Hurricane Harvey, so they're stepping up to do what they can. 

Sandra Bullock donated $1million, Floyd Mayweather sent $300,000, Chris Lane raised $300,000 to send, Luke Combs sent $10,000 and Lady Antebellum is sending merch proceeds to help. It's not always the monetary that's important, former Bachelor Sean Lowe hopped in a borrowed boat and headed down to help save people stranded in the storm.

Today I had the chance to do what I could to help some people in the Houston area. I couldn't believe the devastation. My heart broke for all the elderly who are immobile and the mothers trapped in their homes with young babies. But I was encouraged by the selflessness of so many Texans who came to help where they could. Definitely a day I'll never forget.

He borrowed the boat from a social media follower and is currently saving lives with it. Not everyone could be saved though, Lowe also saw one man pass away in his arms. 

He told Entertainment Tonight, “We pulled him from a canoe. It took three of us giving CPR for about 15 to 20 minutes before we could get him to an ambulance. His heart was not beating. His face was as blue as blue gets. It really shook me up.”

His effort is what counts though. This is amazing that he just put his life aside in Dallas to help his fellow Texans out in this time of need. It's also not an easy or safe task, so he's risking his life because he felt so compelled. Major props to Sean!! Amazing! He embodies #TexasStrong
