She Was Trapped In Her Car In A Flooded River. Watch Dramatic Rescue

The incident happened in southwest China's Chongqing city on Sunday

A woman in China nearly drowned in an overflowing, raging river while trapped in her car. Luckily for her, she was saved by a group of firefighters who pulled her to safety just in time. The moment she was rescued was caught on camera.

In the video recorded on a cellphone, the woman was seen trapped inside her SUV in the middle of a flooded river, not far from the river bank. With floodwater flowing through violently, the danger of water levels rising was imminent. Fortunately, firefighters jumped into action to help the woman. With the help of a rope-pulley system, a firefighter reached the stranded woman and helped her out of the car. Rescuers waiting at the river bank then reeled her in through the fast-moving water.

Watch the daring rescue here:
