Firefighters Wade Through Flood Waters To Help Get Students To School

DUXBURY (CBS) – These Duxbury students were late for school on Thursday. But they had a pretty good excuse.

A pair of nor’easters in the last week brought flood water to the coastal neighborhood. Crews have not yet been able to pump the water out of the roads.

Duxbury firefighters shared a series of photos showing just how tricky it was for the students to get out the door.

Firefighters joked that they would “respectfully ask for a pardon for these three kids getting to school a little late this morning.”

“We ran into a little water but nothing our High Water Rescue truck couldn’t handle! However all homework will be turned in!”
