A Clark State nursing grad put his kayak in the water to help rescue about a dozen families in Houston.
Kyle Scarbrough, a registered nurse who works at St. David’s South Austin Medical Center in Austin, Texas, said he felt to compelled to help.
“I started hearing the reports from Houston, and I had my gear and kayak with me,” he said. “On a whim, I drove into the middle of Houston ... and flagged down a group of rescue boats. I joined them for about 16 hours of rescue missions,” he said, according to a media release from his alma mater, Clark State Community College.
At night official rescue efforts are suspended, when he and his team worked with the Cajun Navy, a group of volunteers assisting with rescue efforts.
News of his volunteer efforts came as no surprise to Mary Cornell, associate professor of registered nursing for Clark State Community College-Springfield Regional School of Nursing.
“That’s the kind of person Kyle is,” she said. “He has those qualities that you want in a nurse: a caring spirit and a critical thinker. I am very proud of him.”
Scarbrough also was called to assist in a shelter housing evacuated nursing home and hospital patients, Clark State reported.
“Service and volunteering, even in our own communities, gives a sense of purpose and broader perspective of the world,” Scarbrough said.
