It has been reported that they used the fork lift truck to help over 80 people. It has also been reported that the salvation using the fork lift truck took around ten hours.

The rescuers used a fork lift truck as well as a dumper truck so as assist those affected in the Yorkshire flood, and it has been reported that the rescue mission using the forklift truck began when a mother and young baby were trapped in a nearby building. The pair of men used the forklift truck, a Telehandler, which can be described by some as a giant forklift truck to go and rescue the woman and child from being trapped by the flood. This then caused a snowball in people being rescued from buildings and cars.

The floods have been reported as being of an immense level, as people driving motor vehicles were swept away. The counterpart who did not operate the fork lift truck instead utilised a dumper truck so as to lift victims in the water out to safety.
