Mother drowns trying to save toddler during Hurricane Harvey flooding

Officials after levee breaches in Texas: 'Get out now!'

The child was holding onto her mother.

Police officials said officers were called shortly after 3:30 p.m. Tuesday to a service road off Interstate 10, where Sulcer had been driving when she hit high water.

According to reports, she got out of the auto and grabbed her daughter in an effort to save their lives, but got swept into the canal and drifted about half a mile from her vehicle.

According to police in Beaumont, Texas, two hours northeast of Houston, one Texas mother has died after trying to save her infant daughter amid the rushing waters. She pulled over, took her child out of the vehicle, and at some point, got swept into a canal.

The current carried the pair into a waterlogged canal. The rescuers chased the body and caught up with it about half-a-mile downstream from the parking lot.

A spokeswoman for the Beaumont Police Department, Officer Carol Riley, told People Magazine the mother's actions had "absolutely saved the child's life". "When the baby was found the baby was clinging to her".

The woman drowned in the water while the toddler survived.

Authorities say the child was holding to her mother and was responsive but suffering from hypothermia. She was later pronounced dead.

The child is in stable condition, where she will be released into the care of family members later today. A Good Samaritan helped the officers to find an ambulance that transported the child to the Christus Southeast Texas Hospital - St. Elizabeth.

"So we're thankful that the child was able to be rescued", she concluded.

"The first responders got to the mother and child just before they went under a trestle". He was reportedly out of town when tragedy struck.

Harvey, which previously reached hurricane status, has ravaged parts of the greater Houston area, sending thousands of people from their homes and leaving more than 20 people dead, according to U.S. media reports.
