An unreal rescue from the Baton Rouge flooding in Louisiana was caught on camera. Since being posted on the internet, it has reached over 4,000,000 views in a mere span of two weeks.
The video shows a heroic man diving into the waters to save a woman and her dog from a sinking car moments just before they started drowning.“Oh my God, I’m drowning,” a woman is heard screaming from inside the vehicle.
Upon finally being above water, the woman informs Phung that they needed to save one more victim- her dog. She tells him that the little dog is in the car and desperately begs him to help her.
“Get my dog, get my dog,” she said frantically as she is catching her breath. “Get my dog, now. I’ll go down.” “I can’t get the dog,” Phung says. He then tries to look inside the submerged convertible, but to no luck. Just to note, the water is very murky and practically impossible to see through.
Seeing that the situation is dire, one of the rescuers, identified as David Phung, jumps into the waters and tries to save the woman. Just when it started to look like she was lost, Phung pulls the woman out from the car’s sunroof just before the car completely submerges.
