Devastating footage shows a couple’s home being swept away in floods near Taree. The home was filmed being dragged in flood waters on the Manning River near the mid north coast town. A video shared by local woman Ciara Knox from Taree showed the house being swept down the river. “Heartbreaking,” she wrote sharing the shocking footage. A GoFundMe has been set up to support the couple, Josh and Sarah, who lived in the home. It has already raised more than $26,000.
In a cruel twist, the couple were engaged and due to be married on Saturday, according to the GoFundMe. “On 20th March our brother Joshua and his fiance Sarah lost their entire home and belongings to the flood waters in Mondrook, NSW, on the mid north coast.
“What was supposed to be their wedding day ended up with their house floating down river and them losing everything they have work hard for and sadly losing their pets as well. “We are trying to raise money to help them start again, anything would be much appreciated.”
