Misty and Dewayne Gilbert of Flat Rock are bumped and bruised, but feeling pretty blessed to be alive these days.

They are the couple who got swept away in the flash flood at Lake Guntersville State Park Labor Day weekend. Misty saw a kayak floating in the storm water in the campground, thought it was very shallow and went to retrieve it. She was actually trying to do a good deed.
