Fort Myers, FL – As Hurricane Ian lashed Fort Myers, a good Samaritan trudged through turbulent water and whipping winds to rescue a dog and cat who were on a sailboat.

Brian Entin, with NewsNation, was broadcasting as the man cradled the brown and white dog in his arms and walked to a safe area.

According to Entin, the man went back to the tethered boat and rescued a cat too. On Thursday morning, Entin Tweeted a photo of the dog, writing: “She’s doing well today!”

In Bonita Beach, Megan Scavo captured a video of her boyfriend venturing out into the storm to rescue a cat who was trying to escape the flood waters.

Residents were warned to keep their pets inside as the massive hurricane approached, but not everyone heeded the advice. Fortunately, there are good Samaritans willing to go above and beyond to help the vulnerable.
