Bright & Early: Unlikely Help Edition

Good morning, Nashville. Most of us have heard the story about group of inmate volunteers who saved the Omohundro water treatment facility from flooding with their mad sandbagging skills. News Channel 5 takes a closer look at what happened that day and finds that some inmates worked as many as 36 hours straight shoveling 500 tons of sand into 34,000 sandbags that ultimately saved our water supply. Consequently, our whole city dodged a huge water crisis and the inmates are glad to have helped. Mayor Dean will be meeting with the 400 volunteers on Friday to thank them in person.
