Arizona driver rescued from car stuck in flood waters

Police rescued a motorist after his vehicle was trapped in a flood in Apache Junction, Arizona on July 28. Footage released by the Apache Junction Police Department shows police pulling a woman out of a partially flooded car through a broken window. The driver is heard asking the police to rescue her dog. Although the driver was rescued, police said they were “deeply saddened” that they were unable to remove the driver’s dog from the car. “At the latest check, family and friends were looking for this beloved pet,” the department said in a Facebook post. The Apache Junction Police Department said it responded to more than 24 different calls for “flood-related service” on Thursday and, as the monsoon rains continued, warned residents not to drive on the flooded roads. On Thursday, the National Weather Service issued a flash flood warning for Apache Crossing and urged people to move to higher ground. Credit: Apache Junction Police Department via Storyful.
