N.B. couple laughing in the face of disaster

An elderly New Brunswick couple lost everything when floodwaters swamped their cottage, but they are still able to laugh in the face of disaster. 

Shawn McNee posted a video of his 75-year-old father Robert trying to enter the cottage on Grand Lake, which is one of the worst-hit areas.

The video begins with McNee's 72-year-old mother, Darlene, chuckling as her husband fumbles to the door in knee-high rubber boots in the murky water with pitchfork in hand.

McNee couldn't get into the cottage and ended up falling belly-first into the murky water but wasn't hurt.
