A cow was trapped in a tree after Hurricane Ida passed through the state of Louisiana (USA), which brought winds of up to 240 km/h to the country. The video of the unusual rescue operation gained attention on social networks, where the effort of the team from the city of Florissant, which met in a still flooded area and used saws to save the animal, was recorded.
The relief team was led by members of the parish of St. Bernard, who shared the images on social networks, where they already have 75,000 views.

For the Louisiana government, Ida is the second largest hurricane to hit the state since Katrina in 2005. Ida arrived on the Louisiana coast as a category 4 hurricane with winds of up to 240km/h, but a few hours later was downgraded to category 1.
The storm left New Orleans without electricity, which affected more than a million residents, according to the website PowerOutage.US. About 70,000 people also suffered from power outages in the state of Mississippi—where the hurricane headed after it hit Louisiana.
