Female survivors urged to flash breasts for help


Rescuers told gals on rooftops to 'show us what you've got'

Female survivors of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans were urged by government rescuers to flash their breasts in order to receive help in the immediate aftermath of the storm.

That according to English tourists who are now just returning to the United Kingdom, relating their horror stories to British media.

Ged Scott, 36, of Liverpool, was on his annual vacation at New Orleans' Ramada Hotel with his wife Sandra, 37, and their 7-year-old son, Ronan.

"I could not describe how bad the authorities were, taking photographs of us as we are standing on the roof waving for help, for their own personal photo albums, little snapshot photographs," Scott told BBC News.

Scott said there was a group of girls standing on the lobby's roof, calling out to passing rescuers for help.

"[The authorities] said to them, 'Well, show us what you've got' – doing signs for them to lift their T-shirts up. The girls said no, and [the rescuers] said 'well fine,' and motored off down the road in their motorboat. That's the sort of help we had from the authorities," he said.

New Orleans is noted for women flashing their breasts in public, especially during the annual Mardi Gras festival.

Scott called the relief operation "horrendous," noting police officers had taken "souvenir" photographs of stranded people begging for help.

"The only information we got from anybody in authority was if a policeman came past and we shouted to them out of the windows. The only information we ever got off them was negative, 'Do not go here. Do not go there'. There was no, 'Are you OK? Are you safe? Have you got water?' Most of the time they would ignore us."

Scott recounted that at night, police completely vanished, leaving stranded hotel guests and staff to defend themselves.

"You would hear shots ringing out during the night and that was one of the most worrying things, because we had no security," Scott said. "We patrolled the halls and checked the doors throughout the night in the hotel – but if someone had wanted to come in, there was not much we could have done about it."

Scott waded through waist-deep water to barricade the hotel's doors.

"It was like wading through an open sewer," he said. "It reeked to high heaven and made you want to vomit. Outside I could see bodies floating in the water."

He says looters actually tried to sell the Ramada's guests stolen cell phones, radios and clothing.

The guests were finally rescued by Louisiana game wardens, who entered the hotel with rifles and fixed bayonets.

The family is back safe in England, but Scott says he worries about the psychological impact on his young son.

"He was fantastic – but he has been exposed to things no 7-year-old should ever see, and it is bound to come out in the future."

Guess there is still a use for that bayo lug.

I don't believe this for one second.

There isn't a breast left in NOLA that even the most desperate among us would like to see bared.

I'm sure it's all the gods honest truth.

He's just ticked because they asked him to flash his boobs first and told his baboon looking wife to keep her shirt down.

Probably some guys in camoflage. The Brits are probably city slickers who have never seen anyone in camo other than troops.


Where's Vito? Maybe he can tell us how many Brits wear camo on a daily basis. In the South, camo clothes are office suits, work clothes and leisure wear all combined.

They wouldn't need to flash them. They hang out from the bottom of their shirts.

BDUs are office clothes and work clothes here in the US in the time of war. However, ChairForce seems to like wearing their service dress in the office though! It looks sharp and professional IMHO.

I'd be shocked if it was from someone in an orange and white bird, or anything stenciled "US Army".

However, from the locals I would not amaze me in the least.

Either the people wanting to be flashed aren't real authorities, and were just civilians in BDU's or something, or the story is BS.
After reading other stories on that site, I could go either way...

I call BS on this story. No rescuer would be that kind of scum as to pull this breast crap.

Although hard to believe, it is possible. Remember, the NO Police are filled with corrupt cops and thugs. Too bad there is not a video of this.

If they had breasts they wouldn't still be there... they'd have used them big ol' floatation devices and bugged out.

You would have thought the WGN-TV 4 on the bottom of the helicopter would have given them the clue that the people talking the pictures were not rescuers.

Why's that? I know at least one rescuer that took photos during his chopper time and I don't see anything wrong with it. He and his crew rescued 72 people and 2 dogs and never ever asked this kind of BS to the rescuees.

I guess the "Girls Gone Wild - Mardis Gras" banner on the side of the helicopter didn't sink in.

It was probably just a bunch of thugs coming by in a boat. It went down like this:

"Oh look honey, black guys with guns, it must be the authorities!"

"Yo shawty, pull yo shirt up and show us dem big ass titties"
