Former Eagles wide receiver Freddie Mitchell knows exactly how bad Hurricane Ida was after he was rescued when his house flooded.
His house flooded on Wednesday and he then filmed himself in a local Walmart in his underwear buying clothes.
“The local fire department over there actually came, banged on my window and literally it was three stories up banging on my window with a rescue boat saying you need to get out,” Mitchell said Friday in an interview with FOX29 Philadelphia. “You need to evacuate ASAP. It was the most (sic) craziest I ever experience … My house being flooded. It was crazy.”
Mitchell said rescuers dropped him out at the Schuylkill River and he figured Walmart would be the only place open at that time and he ventured into the store.
“I was literally that character in Walmart,” Mitchell said.
As you know, Mitchell played for the Eagles for four seasons from 2001 to 2004 and appeared in one Super Bowl. He had 90 catches for 1,263 yards and five touchdowns.
