Man saves woman, dog seconds before car sinks

Swept up in the raging floodwaters around Baton Rouge, Louisiana, one woman and her dog found themselves rapidly sinking in her car with no way to escape. The small red convertible had the top up and they were trapped inside as it became engulfed in the fast-moving flood.

Just as the car was sucked under water, becoming submerged, a rescue worker reached the vehicle and dove into the water on the driver's side.

He shouted to the other rescuer, "Give me a knife, give me a knife," and quickly pried open the convertible as it sunk.

Only a few seconds later, he freed the driver and brought her to surface. As she gasped for air, the first words she said were, "Get my dog! Get my dog!"
