LAST WEEK, several parts of Bosnia, Serbia, and Croatia, where devastated by a flood consisting of over three-months worth of rain. According to The Weather Channel, “more than 100,000 homes, 230 schools, businesses, roads and railways were washed out by the flooding. Tens of thousands were evacuated across the three countries…Around a million people are without drinking water in Bosnia alone.”

Having lived through Hurricane Sandy, I can say first hand how awful it is to watch your home be swept away by water — but I can also attest to the amazing kindness and power employed by people during times of crisis. This video, of a baby being airlifted from the scene of a flood, is one such example of how citizens of the world come together when others need them the most.
