LYNN HAVEN — One Lynn Haven community will be featured in an upcoming airing of TV network ABC’s Hearts of Heroes.


When Hurricane Michael’s category 5 strength winds virtually blew away the Christensen’s house — with them trapped in the garage — neighbors in Lynn Haven’s Alexander Drive community didn’t hesitate to spring into action.

"It had to be everybody on Alexander Drive who came out of the woodwork to rescue them," said neighborhood resident Venus Weaver. "Everything fell in, there was debris everywhere and once we saw that people were in there, we reacted."


The courageous rescue will be featured on the first episode of the second season of the show, which will air Jan. 4 on WMBB. The story was also covered by New York Times in October 2018.


Hearts of Heroes is an educational docu-series featuring untold heroic stories of emergency responders in the aftermath of natural disasters. BELFOR Property Restoration co-produced the show in conjunction with ABC and Litton Entertainment.


"Our house was demolished where everybody else had trees here and there," Stacy Christensen said. "Our house was gone."


She went on to describe a unnerving scene where her husband, Paul Christensen, was "picked up by the wind and thrown across the room, and fractured his shin bone." She, too, suffered injuries — a deep cut on her leg — as their home was being shredded by the heavy winds.


As it became increasingly unsafe to stay inside of their home, the couple, along with their dog, fled to their garage where they weathered the rest of the storm for the next hour and a half.


When the storm passed, and everything was still, the Christensens heard the sound of neighbor’s voices coming to their aid.


"It was a matter of relief knowing it was clear to get out of the vehicle," Christensen said. "The way our house fell ... they dug us out and relieved us and they helped us move debris to help us get out of it."


In that moment, neighbors on Alexander Drive became lifelong friends.


"We were neighbors for a long time, but we never talked," Weaver said. "That day brought us together."


"When I saw Stacey crawling out with her dog, I just hugged her and took her to my home," she added.

The Weavers immediately opened their home to the Christensens, who stayed with the Weavers for a handful of days — a gesture that was invaluable and unforgettable, according to Stacy.


"They’re the real heroes in our eyes," she said. "They’re the ones that got us through this all. It was not so much about being rescued from the garage as much as them opening up their house and letting us in."


Weaver said it was an easy thing to do, particularly for a neighbor.


"They lost everything," she said. "I wouldn't call that being a hero. I would call it being a Christian, being neighborly. I would hope someone would do it for me.


"I just think God had a hedge of protection over this neighborhood, because those two people should have been casualties," she said. "I want to give God the glory for that. And for the Alexander community, I'm so thankful."
