As the devastation continues in Texas, some positive stories have surfaced in the flood waters. On Wednesday, NBA star Jonathan Simmons revealed in an interview with John Denton that rapper Trae Tha Truth rescued him with his boat from Hurricane Harvey's flooding in Houston.
"Trae the Truth, the rapper, is from Houston and we know a mutual friend from San Antonio. They brought a boat to Houston because [Trae] had to evacuate as well," said Simmons, who played at the University of Houston during his collegiate years. "They came and got [Trae] and then he came and got us right away. Luckily, I had a friend in the area who could help us out."
According to Simmons, he originally left his downtown condo and ventured over to Richmond, Texas, to stay with his friends in what he thought would have been a three-day stay. Little did he know, he ended up spending time with over 20 people in a house with hardly any food.
