A Covington based company ended up using its own equipment to save hometown residents from this weekend's flood.
Its called Hydratrek.
It's a special land-water vehicle that was put to good use this weekend as it headed into flood waters in Millington and Tipton County.
“I was knee deep in water and didn't realize the gravity of it because I was helping my neighbors,” says Millington resident Cleveland Wilburn.
“We are so happy that we are together...we've still got each other...we're very lucky,” adds resident Fonda Booker.
Booker is just one of hundreds of Millington residents who lost everything in this weekend's floods.
“Very devastating, a lot of people in distress, animals swimming around,” says Hydratrek’s Craig Simonton.
Using the Hydratrek, Simonton, along with members of Tennessee Task Force One, traveled flooded streets helping rescue those stranded by the water.
