While an NBC 5 crew was covering the flooding near Towne Lake Park in McKinney, the cameraman recorded a beaver swimming upstream that covered the sidewalk.
Tuesday night’s storms caused creeks surrounding Towne Lake to overflow, and this beaver seemed to think the flooded walkway was still part of his lake home.
On Monday, four people from this city were brought to safety after three separate incidents during which their cars were swept away by flash floods.
Two of these people were rescued near Towne Lake, the same lake where the beaver was seen.
All those who were rescued are unharmed and no injuries have been reported, authorities said.
