NY POST - An eight-year-old Houston boy was stricken by an asthma attack in the middle of Tropical Storm Harvey — but couldn’t get treatment fast enough and died.

Little Noah Delgado was home Monday as the floods raged outside and he began suffering an attack, his mother told local ABC affiliate KTRK.

“He was getting worse and worse by the second,” the boy’s distraught mother, Tina Galan, said, adding that Noah’s inhaler wasn’t helping and — despite repeated calls to 911– no one was answering.

The frantic mother said she ran outside into the storm, with her son in her arms, desperate to get him to the hospital.

Then she noticed he’d stopped breathing.

“I sat here and laid him down and did CPR on him,” she said.

A stranger in a truck stopped and started driving them to a hospital. They came across an ambulance that took them the rest of the way.

“Everyone told me, ‘He’s going to be OK, he’s going to be OK,’ ” Galan said.

But once they arrived at North Cyprus Medical Center, doctors realized Noah needed more care. He was airlifted to Texas Children’s Hospital about 20 miles away, but there wasn’t enough room in the chopper for Galan, so she had to travel separately on the ground.

But the frightened mother soon became trapped in floodwaters herself and had to be rescued. When she finally made it to the hospital, she was told her young son had no brain activity. He was pronounced dead Wednesday.

“He just loved,” the stricken mother said of her son. “He didn’t care what you looked like, who you were.”

The family’s GoFundMe page, set up to cover funeral and medical expenses, reads, “Noah was loving and energetic, and lit up the room with his presence,” “He was loved by all of his teachers and friends.

“He was a brave young man and loved a challenge. Always up for a new adventure. Noah was very respectful and a leader to his peers. He loved playing video games, watching scary movies, home cooked meals and Pokemon.”

Noah, who would have turned 9 on Sept. 10, was the second youngest victim of Harvey.

Texas Authorities said Saturday that Harvey’s youngest victim was a 6-month-old baby who was swept away in rushing floodwaters Aug. 27.

So far the storm is believed to have claimed some 50 lives.
