A Houston woman swam through 10-feet of water to rescue her 89-year-old neighbor but it was too late

A Houston woman named Michele Poche told KTRK, she swam through around 10 feet of water to check on her 89-year-old neighbor, Agnes Stanley. In order to rescue the old lady, she called her son and received permission to break a window of the home.

“Rescue mode, yeah,” she said. “I knew my kids were safe. I wanted to take care of everyone else at that point.”

She wanted to save her old neighbor, Stanley in this hard time. Unfortunately, she failed to rescue her as it was too late.

Poche said, “She had great difficulty getting around.” She said, “She was not ambulatory, neighbors brought her paper every day, brought her coffee, we all kind of pitched in to take care of her.”

89-year-old Agnes Stanley has drowned, the Harris County Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed.

“We saw that she was under the water, and we backed out and called 911,” she said. “We think that the water got too high and she may have drowned.”

Stanley’s family is in deep shock and too much upset to open up about her death on camera. Her dead body was found after two days.

According to the Houston Police Department, four houses had been burglarized including Stanley’s home.

Poche said, “She was still in there.” She told KTRK, “The coroner was not able to get in until Thursday to pick her body up. Yeah, they broke into her house and stole stuff, too.”
