UK’s First Official Gay Dads Rescued From Flood

Barrie and Tony Drewitt-Barlow, the first gay couple to both be listed as parents on their children’s birth certificates, were rescued from their car on Saturday night after it had become stranded in a flooded road.

Barie, 43, and Tony, 48, who have had five children by a surrogatcy, were wearing tuxes when a fire crew passing by saw their Range Rover, which had become stuck in about five feet of water.

It took 15 emergency workers nearly an hour to rescue the couple as a police helicopter shined its searchlights on the rescue boat.
