It was a different kind of emergency this past weekend in Kearney, Nebraska.

A massive wall of water burst through the cafeteria at Good Samaritan Hospital as horrified employees watched on. Security cameras were rolling inside the dining facility as rushing waters tore through the large glass windows, causing extensive damage. The wave of water even came dangerously close to one employee, who escaped uninjured. A temporary kitchen has been set up to prepare meals for patients, and damage from the incident is still being assessed.
