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.
