WATCH – Officers Rescue Woman Trapped in Sinking Car: ‘I Got Her!’

Citizens acted fast with help from Port Orange, Florida, police officers when a pizza delivery driver veered off the roadway and landed in a canal.

The incident took place Friday after heavy rainfall caused flash flooding to areas of Flagler and Volusia counties, Fox 35 reported.

The driver went off the flooded road and into a canal near Cedar in the Wood.

“She got a little confused and turned left directly into the canal because the water was level with the road,” Port Orange Police Sgt. William Harrison told the outlet.

A neighbor called 911 and the officers rushed over to perform the rescue.

Three officers responded to the call and discovered a woman was trapped inside the car as it sank deeper and deeper in the water.

Sgt. Harrison noted one officer cut himself on the window’s glass and said it can be very dangerous whenever officers enter the water because victims panic.
