Hurricane Irma: Kristen Bell saved Josh Gad’s parents from storm

‘They don’t make them like this girl’

“So Kristen Bell literally saved my parents and my entire family tonight from Hurricane Irma,” Josh Gad wrote on Instagram.

Somewhat miraculously, as the Category 4 storm crashed through Florida, Gad’s Frozen co-star was in exactly the right place at the right time.

Over the last few weeks, Bell has been filming the upcoming filmLike Father in Orlando, hunkering down in a hotel as Hurricane Irma came.

Gad’s parents were stranded in nearby when Bell offered to help, finding the pair — along with Gad’s brothers, sister-in-law, niece and nephew — a place in her hotel to stay as they waited out the storm.

“They don’t make them like this girl,” Gad wrote, alongside an image of Bell with his parents. “Thank you Kristen. You are truly an angel sent from above.”

Bell had previously posted an image to Instagram detailing how herself and others in the Orlando area were bracing themselves for the Hurricane.

“Every person I passed today was assisting someone else, it was beautiful to see,” she wrote. “Sad that a hurricane has to bring out the best in everyone- but happy that the community will be holding hands through this.”

After Gad posted, Hurricane Irma moved towards Florida Keys, being upgraded to a Category 4 storm. Follow here for the latest updates.
