Good Samaritans ‘Cajun Navy’ dodges gunfire while trying to rescue Hurricane Harvey refugees
A famous group that organized during Hurricane Katrina came to Houston to help with Harvey rescues — but not everyone is happy to see them.
In an interview with Headline News, Clyde Cain of the Louisana Cajun Navy told host Carol Costello that some of their freshly-arrived boats have “been shot at” by panicked Houstonians.
“People that want to be rescued are trying to steal the boat,” Cain said, to the surprise of host Costello.
“Are these bad people or people who wanna be rescued?” she asked him.
“Bad people, people that wanna be rescued and people that are just panicking,” Cain said.
The boats have incurred damage, he continued, because some people have shot at them.
“We have boats being shot at if we’re not picking everybody up,” he said.
Due to damage to the boats, Cain said the group is having to replace boats while also trying to rescue people.
“We’re kind of under attack,” he concluded.
