Jeff Flock — a reporter for Fox Business — was in the middle of a live report from Houston on Thursday’s Varney & Co when an Army truck drew his attention.
Flock spoke extemporaneously about the vehicle — which held 10 people in the back as it crept across the flood-ravaged streets of Houston — before he figured out why exactly it caught his eye.
“That’s my daughter,” Flock said. “She’s waving.”
Elizabeth Flock is a reporter for the PBS Newshour. She, like her father, was dispatched to Texas to cover the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. Both Flocks were aware that the other was in Houston but they had been unable to communicate with each other since they’d arrived.
The father was clearly overcome spotting his daughter in the field.
“I’ll be darned, isn’t that something?” Flock said. He added, “I am blown away.”
