John McGinnis of Grayson County felt a calling to hitch his bass boat to the back of his truck and drive 18 hours down to Houston to help out with the flood relief.
Now he’s being called a hero.
McGinnis drew attention after ABC 13 in Houston tracked him down for an interview on live television as he motored through the flood looking for anyone in need.
“There’s a lot of good people down here,” McGinnis told ABC 13. “I’ve never seen so much love in a place in my life.”
