Amazing rescue, lucky guy.  I hope he didn't endanger himself and his rescuers by foolishly having driven his car onto a flooded street.  That seems to happen a lot.

Where is the video? I see a still.

Colorado floods: Man pulled alive from submerged car

2 hours ago

A man has survived after his car was submerged for over an hour in floods in Colorado.

He became trapped after a bridge was washed away, sending three cars tumbling into the water below.

When fire crews finally reached the scene, the car was winched onto its side, revealing the driver alive in an air pocket inside.

However, the car fell back into the water before the man could be rescued.

Who is writing this shit? did they rescue him or not?

ETA:Ok, reloaded the page and now the video player is working.  But shit...if you don't watch the video...that writing is horrible.

Thankfully for cases like that, we have the stupid motorist law. smile
