Truck Driver Gives Flood-Stranded Motorist A Piggyback Ride To Safety


A box truck driver went above and beyond to rescue a motorist whose vehicle was stranded by floodwaters in California’s North Bay area today.

According to the California Highway Patrol, a Mercedes-Benz driver attempted to maneuver her car through floodwaters. After she became stuck, CHP officers asked a box truck driver to help the woman.

The truck driver was able to park next to the stalled car and even allowed the stranded motorist to jump on his back as he carried her to safety.

CHP says the incident is a good reminder to “turn around” and “find an alternate route” rather than to drive through flood waters.
