S.C. Pastor Braves Floodwaters to Save Casket for Grieving Family
Article originally appeared on NBC Washington
A pastor defied a deputy’s orders Monday, wading out to retrieve a casket floating away in fetid floodwaters in Ridgeville, South Carolina — because “this is America.”
Wayne H. Reeves watched for hours Monday as a casket began floating away from the cemetery of New Canaan Methodist Church, NBC News reported. That’s a sister church of New Life Ministries, a nondenominational church in nearby Summerville, where Reeves is the pastor.
The casket had been forced up out of the ground by the historic floods inundating the Palmetto state.
