A woman was drowning in Louisiana’s historic floods on the weekend when a man came to her rescue at the perfect time… Then he took a deep breath, plunged again and resurfaced — with her dog.
The incident was caught on video and shows the woman pleading for help and shouting “Oh my God, I’m drowning!”, as her car is engulfed by the deep, swirling, brown water.
As the video starts, the woman’s car is already about two-thirds submerged. Then three men take their boat up to her vehicle, but are unable to break the car’s window.
A dramatic video shows a woman shouting for help as her convertible submerges into the deep water of the Louisiana floods.
Here is the video itself:
And here are the highlights:
The car is about two-thirds submerged when the men approached and tried to help.
The three men first tried to break the rear window, but were unsuccessful in the first rescue attempt.
The car continues to sink and boat passenger David Phung jumps out of the boat on to her car.
He is able to cut into the roof of the convertible’s fabric roof and free the woman from drowning.
Phung is then able to pull the woman out of her vehicle and starts to pull her to safety.
But before heading for the boat, the woman pleads with Phung to get her dog from her vehicle.
After several seconds, Phung takes a deep breath, goes underwater to find the dog.
Several seconds later, Phung emerges from the water with the woman’s small dog.
Following the scary incident, the three then swim to safety and are believed to be OK.
