A live broadcast turned scary when a man got stuck inside his own vehicle as it began sinking behind the reporter. Just wait until you see the wild video, in which the stunned driver isn’t exactly sure how to escape the harrowing situation.
The flooding in Texas has been devastating as heavy rains and storms continue to ravage the area. That’s how one driver found himself swimming for his life after driving into waist-deep water that he later said he believed was just a puddle.
In the video below, watch as a man sticks his head out of the passenger door of his car while it emerges into the water. You can hear the reporter from the live broadcast telling the man to leave his car behind and swim, but the driver seems confused about what’s happening. Just before the car completely disappears under water, the man dives out into the water to escape.
Thankfully, the reporter was there not only to coax him out of his vehicle but reach him in the water and help him to safety. Check out the clip below:
“I thought, ‘how am I going to get out of here?’ and then I opened the door,” the driver later told the reporter once he found his bearings. Despite losing his car, the driver seemed very grateful to the reporter for saving his life.
Our thoughts remain with Texas during this difficult time.
