County rescuers pay tribute to those who helped a year ago
MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Ky. (WTVQ) – Help during difficult times always is appreciated,
especially when tragedy and loss of life is involved.
Almost a year ago, first responders in Bath County needed help — physical, emotional and spiritual.
And surrounding communities didn’t hesitate when five members of an Amish family got swept away when their buggy got caught in flood waters.
“On April 29, 2020, we were requested to respond to Bath County to assist in the search for five small children who had been lost in the flood waters,” Montgomery County Sheriff’s David Charles said Tuesday in a Facebook post. “Today, Bath Emergency Services Director Jason York presented us with certificates and a coin to immortalize the victims and those who came to their aide.
“We would like to thank Dir. York and the businesses of Bath County who sponsored these.
Our hearts still break for this family’s loss and they continue to be in our prayers. The coin has five sets of angel’s wings and Revelations 21:4,” Charles added.
The Bible verse reads, “And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.”
