But during all of this chaos, an adorably heartwarming photo became a bright spot that has gone viral. Shawn Wiebe is a Nanton firefighter who was helping people who were trapped in their homes and cars as the flood water was quickly rising. But when Wiebe came across one older woman, he decided it would be best to simply carry her above the water. When he did so, the woman said something to him that he would never forget: “Oh! I haven’t been carried like this since my wedding night!” Wiebe burst into laughter upon hearing this, and newspaper photographer Lyle Aspinall happened to snap a photo at that very moment…

The photo went viral and Wiebe became an internet sensation! In the video below, Wiebe is interviewed about the rescue and his newfound fame. What a wonderful yet humble person! Let us know what you think of this story and please share it with your family and friends!
