A Middleburg woman fought the rising waters near the Black Creek to save her horses, and her actions were caught on camera.
Heavy rain during Tropical Storm Debby flooded Patty Holton's front yard, and the rising water was covering her two horses, Lady and Sunny.
"The horse had reared up and I was leading the other one, trying to pull them out, and the current just drug us so bad that... my husband he was in the canoe and when he tried to help me he ended up on a telephone pole down there," said Holton.
A neighbor picked her husband up in a canoe while Holton did her best to get the horses out of the water.
"We had to take them up this way to the girl scout camp to higher ground, you know, and we could only find a small island and we had to leave them tied there overnight while the creek crested," she said.
With the help of an ocean rescue team, Holton was able to get her horses back home -- but the house was heavily damaged during the storm.
"It's pretty bad. Water comes up to your knees, and everything in there is ruined pretty much. All the carpets out," said Ronnie Allen, Holton's husband.
The couple is now sifting through their home, trying to save what they can, but they are thankful to have survived the ordeal.
"I thank God that he saved our lives we could have drowned in the driveway trying to get the horses out and, you know, God spare us that, so there's reason and I just pray that he helps us," said Holton.
