A cameraman at a local Fox station in Houston caught a group of civilians apparently taking shots of liquor as they were rescued during the emergency response to Hurricane Harvey.
KRIV reported live Monday night about a group of men being ferried to safety in the suburbs of Spring, Texas. One of the men produced a blue bottle and a shot glass, passing it around the lifeboat to share for others to take shots as well.
"That was really an example of what we're seeing here," a female anchor narrated. "Look at them sharing water, just out the cap of the bottle. That is fantastic."
"Yeah, I'm not sure that was water," her male co-anchor corrected.
"Well, whatever they need to feel better, guys," she said as he laughed. "Let's just let that one go. Let them have a little—have what they need.
Eventually, the same man did produce a large bottle of water and took a drink.
"There's the water! I told you they had water," the anchor said triumphantly.
