From Dawn Walters Aug. 7, 2020 in the historic society Facebook group:

My mother used to tell about this flood and how her father, Arthur LaCross, came to get her from primary school (they lived in Rutland). She never forgot and always told us about him walking her over a trestle bridge because the roads were flooded, telling her not to look down and to just hold his hand and step where he stepped. If he had not been successful in getting them both to safety, I would not be here!
