Watch as Arizona firefighters work to rescue a tanker truck driver submerged in raging floodwaters


Take a look at dramatic footage of the moment that firefighters were called in to rescue a truck driver trapped by floodwaters.

The water rescue video was captured in Gila Bend, Arizona, on August 14 after monsoon storms swept through the region, causing serious flooding and leaving two people dead. Arizona Governor Doug Ducey has since declared a state of emergency.

In the video, equipment from a Buckeye Fire Department truck is used as a makeshift bridge in the rescue of a tanker truck driver caught up in floodwaters.

Firefighters reportedly rescued about 30 people stranded by floodwaters.
