Rescue Recap: Chris and Rachelle's New Home

When the TODAY show approached George Oliphant about newlywed couple Rachelle and Chris, George knew he had to meet them. Rachelle fell victim to a freak accident at her bachelorette party just weeks before her wedding, when a friend pushed her into a pool. What was just a friendly prank left Rachelle paralyzed below her collarbone. When George and the Rescue crew got word of her tragic story, they headed to Raleigh, North Carolina to team up with the community to give Rachelle and Chris a gift they will never forget, a revamped home that will allow Rachelle her independence. George and the gang witness firsthand southern hospitality when more than 200 people from the community came out to give them a helping hand.
