Woman swims through flood waters to rescue baby caught in car


BRIAN. BRIAN: HERE ON VAN BLARICUM, YOU DON’T HAVE TO LOOK FAR TO SEE THE KIND OF TROUBLE WATER CAN MAKE. THIS MASSIVE HOLE WAS MADE B THE RUSHING WATER. IT IS PROBABLY TWO STORIES. THIS WASN’T EVEN THE MOST DANGEROUS PART OF THE FLOODING. THE ONLY THING THAT CAME UP AS FAST AS THE WATER –>>THERE’S A CAR AND IT’S FLOODED ON RAPID RUN REALLY BAD. BRIAN: WAS AN EMERGENCY.>>THE WATER WAS RISING QUICKLY. BRIAN: AND SANDRA PATTERSON FOUND HERSELF WAIST DEEP IN IT, BEFORE RESCUE ARRIVED. SHE SAW DRIVERS STRANDED IN RISING WATER ON RAPID RUN ROAD, CARS BEGINNING TO FLOAT. SHE WADED OUT TO HELP, AND SUDDENLY THINGS GOT EVEN MORE INTENSE.>>THE WATER’S PROBABLY MIDWAY ON MY WAIST, AND THEN I TELL THEM WE GOT TO GET THE BABY OUT. YOU NEED TO GIVE ME THE BABY. WE NEED TO GO. BRIAN: SHE GRABBED THE BABY. THE PARENTS BAILED OUT THE WINDOWS. THEY ALL GOT OUT OF THE WATER AND TURNED AROUND TO SEE WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN.>>IT WAS ABOUT THREE SECONDS AND IT WAS ALREADY HIGH, BUT THEN THE CAR WAS GONE. BRIAN: EMERGENCY CREWS ARRIVED, BUT THAT WASN’T THE ONLY RESCUE.>>I WOULD HAVE BEEN REALLY SCARED, IF I DIDN’T SEE THE FIREMEN RIGHT THERE. BRIAN: DON KELTY WAS ALSO ON RAPID RUN WHEN HE SUDDENLY FOUND HIMSELF FLOATING ALONG.>>I’M JUST SITTING IN IT, AND THE WATER IS FILLING UP, AND IT WENT UP TO MY WAIST OVER THE WHOLE SEAT. BRIAN: IT TOOK FIREFIGHTERS TO PULL THE DOOR OPEN AGAINST THE FORCE OF THE WATER TO GET DON OUT AND TO SAFETY. A DAY LATER, SOME LOCAL BUSINESSES WERE STILL CLEANING UP, WHILE OTHERS WERE LEFT TO CONSIDER THE DISASTER AVOIDED.>>I REALLY BELIEVE IT WAS IN GOD’S HANDS. THE CAR WENT UNDER THAT QUICK. BRIAN: VERY FORTUNATE IT TURNED OUT THE WAY IT DID. MEANWHILE HERE IN VAN BLARCIUM, THE ROAD IS SHUT DOWN. IT COULD TAKE MONTHS BEFORE REPAIRS ARE COMPLETE.
