(WECT) - Two strangers worked together Thursday to help rescue people in need.

Diego Perez and his wife came to North Carolina from Georgia with a bunch of supplies, MREs and two kayaks.

Their plan is to paddle through flood waters to deliver the supplies to people stuck in their homes in need.

John Guthrie was driving around, scoping out the scene when he saw Perez preparing to paddle out on White Marsh Road and stopped to offer help.

"I didn't know if he was going to his house or if he was going out for other people," said Guthrie.

Guthrie, an instructor at Southeastern Community College, was quick to offer a hand when he learned Perez thought there were some people out there that ?may have been stranded.

A quick handshake between the gentlemen began their venture out to deliver supplies.

This is not the first time Perez and his wife have reached out to offer help. The couple also saved a family from their home Monday afternoon in the kayak.
