High water rescue in San Antonio took extra equipment

- Tense moments were happening in San Antonio, Monday morning.

In the midst of flooding, first-responders are working to rescue a driver trapped on top of an SUV.

FOX affiliate KABB reports firefighters extended ladders from two trucks, and also prepared at least one boat to put in the water.

Then, after 45 minutes, "Fire crews tied an extra step ladder onto the fully extended truck ladder and reached the driver as water rose against the SUV. The ladder extension was enough to reach the stranded driver and he was pulled to safety.

"He did not appear to be hurt."

As a reminder that can save your life, when driving in flooding, "Turn around, don’t drown."
