SAVANNAH, GA (CBS46) -

A Savannah-Chatham Police lieutenant was captured on video rescuing a flag from the flooding of Irma on Patriots Day.

Lieutenant Greg Ernst was surveying the area for damage on September 11 when he came across a flag attached to a piece of driftwood that had been at the location since the 1980's.

The flag pole had been blown down due to heavy winds.

The department posted a video on Facebook showing Lieutenant Ernst rescuing the flag and displaying it in the stiff breeze.
