VIDEO: Trucker Rescued From Houston Flood Waters

Our thanks go out to these brave rescuers!

Watch as a local news crew helps to bring rescuers to help a driver who finds himself trapped inside his truck as it is submerged by deadly flood waters in Houston.

As many of you know, KHOU 11 News was evacuated due to flooding. That meant my photographer Mario and I were the only ones left on air for … well … I don’t even know how long.

The #KHOU11 signal cut out just as Harris County Sheriff’s Office crews got their rescue boat in the water to pull a semi driver out of his flooded cab. I’ve had SO many people asking if he made it out OK and I wanted to share the video. (We kept going and rolling until the camera’s battery died, not knowing we’d been knocked off the air.) They pull him out around the 4:40 mark. THANK GOD for that crew.
