A flash flood in an Arkansas campground last Friday has claimed at least 20 lives thus far – but two families were able to escape the rising waters thanks to their alert children and their HUMMER H3’s ability to ford deep water.
NBC’s Today Show interviewed the group who is thankful to be alive this week:
The video below is NOT from the flood, but demonstrates what the H3 and H3T are capable of when it comes to navigating through water:
Let’s see ya do that in a Prius! People can say all they want but the problem was perception. If H3 had been marketed correctly and had been before H2, I think different ballgame.
The flooding is a trajedy, but I’m glad that Hummer is represented and saved the life of a family. Save HUMMER!
Not that they would care, but send these clips to GM!
Not only can the HUMMER save the lives of our service men and women. But proof that they can save the lives of civilians also.
Save the HUMMER line so it can continue to save lives.
(this is my input on the subject)
IN THE 2004 HURRICANE SEASON HERE IN FLORIDA MY H2 GOT USED A LOT TAKING FAMILY MEMBERS TO CHECK ON ONE ANOTHER. MANY TIMES WE HAD TO GO DOWN AND THUR DITCHS AROUND FALLING OAK TREES TO GET TO THE ROAD ON THE OTHER SIDE THAT THEY WERE BLOCKING. NO TRUCK COULD HAVE DONE WHAT THE HUMMER COULD DO. THE DITCHS WERE FULL OF WATER AND WERE STEEP SIDED. HUMMER WILL NEVER DIE COMPLETELY………….
I saw this video the day it aired, I especiallay loved the part when he said that the HIGH air intake on the H3 helped them to get out of harms way, I too live in Hurricane alley here in Louisiana sometimes the river here gets high and i know that when it does my truck will be there to get us out.
long live the only real off road vehicle, the Hummer. Long live AMerica, she will get her head out of the dirt eventually
