Transcript for A look back at Florida's first responders after Hurricane Michael
Finely tonight here, the persons of the week and on a week like this, there are too many to count. We flew over Mexico beach with customs and border protection's great Lakes air and marine operations, from Detroit. They were helping with search and rescue, and delivering supplies. It's really hard to put words to the level of destruction here. You see homes sitting in the middle of streets. Clearly swept away by the storm surge. Tonight, new images, members of the air and marine operations, airlifting a stranded couple out. There were so many people who answered the call in Florida. A member of the winston-salem fire department's water rescue helping 5-year-old Isabella molina with her life jacket. Florida's governor, telling us about the teams still looking. Our search and rescue teams are fanning out. Now, they've gotten into the coasts. Trying to get to everybody just to make sure everybody's safe. Reporter: The doctors and nurses at bay medical center. The emergency doors blowing in. The hurricane force winds racing through the E.R. The wind was blowing them in. And the doors were blowing in. And then miraculously, patients just start showing up. Even during the latter part of the storm. I don't even know how they got here. Reporter: Walking into the E.R.? Walking in, carrying babies, carrying the wounded. Reporter: And on the upper floors of the hospital, you can see the hole right through the glass here. Cardiac patients, some awaiting surgery, they had to get them out. You can see the water still on the floor. The doctors working to get those patients out to other hospitals. Among them a mother in premature labor with twins. Tonight we have just learned she gave birth two healthy babies and rob who showed us kittens that fell through the ceiling as one family huddled in the storm. I want to you meet storm survivors. Reporter: Tonight, the kittens are safe, waiting adoption and families throughout the region and holding loved ones a little tighter. So many people awaiting to help and so much generousty. We will stay on this. I hope to see you Monday.
