Surgeon rescued after using boat to save more than 100 people during Harvey

HOUSTON, TEXAS (September08, 2017)

It wasn't just first responders, but everyday citizens who rescued hundreds of people during Harvey. One of them is a neurosurgeon at Memorial Hermann Southwest Hospital. When the water started to rise in Meyerland, Dr. Joseph Cochran became a hero. He jumped in the one thing he had to rescue neighbors, his fishing boat. "It was a little bit surreal. I've never seen anything like that," said Dr. Cochran with UTHealth/Memorial Hermann Mischer Neuroscience Institute.
