Rescuers pull Louisiana woman and her dog from sinking car during deadly flood

Rescuers pull a woman from her submerged car and dive to rescue her dog from rising flood waters near Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Saturday, as the U.S Gulf Coast got pounded by unprecedented rain and flooding, a group of rescuers pulled a woman and her dog from her car just as it slipped under the floodwaters and sank.

CBS affiliate WAFB Channel 9 reported that three Baton Rouge men in a boat came upon the sinking red convertible car just as it was about to completely submerge.

“Get out!” one of the men called to the woman inside.

“I’m trying!” she replied.

“Oh, my god, I’m drowning!” she cried as the rescuers tried to break the window, then slash open the vinyl top.

ne of the men jumped into the water, tore open the roof and was able to haul the woman to safety just as the car disappeared beneath the murky brown water.

“My dog,” she said as the rescuers on the boat threw a life vest into the water. “Get my dog.”

The man who jumped in the water tried to find the dog below the surface, but couldn’t.

“Dude, she’s gone,” says one of the men still in the boat.

However, the rescuer in the water dove under the surface, then reappeared with wet, wriggling white dog in his arms, saying, “I got your dog!”

As the Louisiana floodwaters swallowed Lyn Gibson’s two-story home, she hacked away on a hole near the roof, desperately trying to get to safety.

She used a saw, a screwdriver and her feet, knocking her way through wood, vinyl and sheet rock.

“I just kept picking and hitting and prying until I could get a hole big enough,” the slightly-built, 115-pound woman said. “I would saw for a while. I’d kick at it for a while.”

Eventually, Gibson made it out of her Tangipahoa Parish home with her dogs, and they were all rescued by National Guard soldiers on a boat. It was one of thousands of rescues after a deluge dropped more than a foot of rain on parts of southeast Louisiana, submerging roads, cars and homes.

At least three people were killed across the state, and the rescues were continuing late Saturday, including missions by crews in high-water vehicles who went car to car to pluck motorists from a flood-soaked interstate. Maj. Doug Cain from the Louisiana State Police said about 125 vehicles were stranded on a seven-mile stretch of Interstate 12 near Baton Rouge and the occupants were being taken to safety.

In one dramatic moment earlier in the day, two men on a boat pulled a woman from a car that was almost completely underwater, according to video by WAFB. The woman, who is not initially visible on camera, yells from inside the car: “Oh my god, I’m drowning.”

A woman and her dog have been rescued from a sinking car in Louisiana after the vehicle became submerged in flood water.

Footage released by a local news channel shows rescuers on an emergency boat attempting to break the window of the car with a pole as the woman shouts from inside.

One of the rescuers, David Phung, jumps into the brown water and pulls the woman to safety. She pleads with Phung to get her dog, but he can’t find it. After several seconds, Phung takes a deep breath, goes underwater and resurfaces – with the small dog.

A state police spokesman says authorities are going car to car to rescue people stranded on the Interstate from the horrific Louisiana flooding.

Maj. Doug Cain from the Louisiana State Police said about 125 vehicles are stranded on Interstate 12 between Tangipahoa Parish and Baton Rouge.

He says most of the vehicles are on a seven-mile stretch of the freeway.

Authorities are going in high water vehicles to each car to rescue people and carry them to safety.

The people are being taken to a Target store in Baton Rouge where they can either be picked up by family or friends or will be taken to a shelter.

Torrential rain has swamped large portions of southeast Louisiana, cutting off roads and highways.

    Baton Rouge did not repent, after their horrible hurricane. Like birth
    pangs, things hurt more and are stronger until the child is born. Leviticus
    26 is our Creator’s promise of rain in due season for obeying His wisdom
    and authority, OR 4 x 7 curses UNTIL we turn back to Him in truth as
    written: Malachi 4 says to follow the laws of Moses (all); then
    Messiah-Yahshua-Jesus said to live by every word out of the mouth of God.
    (Matthew 4:4, Luke 16:31)

    The holy days of our Creator are ignored and changed: EXODUS 20:8-11, 31:12-18;
    LEVITICUS 23. ACTS 3:18-21 says all spoken by the prophets must be
    restored. Christianity follows Roman Catholic holy days they changed
    instead of the true commandments as prophesied in Daniel 7:25. Deuteronomy
    4:2 says not to add to nor diminish from God’s commandments.

    RESTORING God’s Sabbaths of no work, will be the outward sign that there is
    ONE God. The unity our Creator has set up for us can only be seen when we
    follow what is written. EVEN the Muslim Qur’an says to follow the whole
    Bible. Our whole culture is against the warnings of God; He designed and
    guided to live off the land, where God provides all our needs.

    As in the days of Jonah, the leader of the nation turned the people to
    repentance and the destruction of Nineveh did not come as God warned. Jonah
    3; Jeremiah 18 is the potter’s house, our Creator speaking. Powerful for
    our times.
    JONAH 3 4 And Jonah began to enter into the city a day’s journey, and he
    cried, and said, Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown.

    5 So the people of Nineveh believed God, and proclaimed a fast, and put on
    sackcloth, from the greatest of them even to the least of them.

    6 For word came unto the king of Nineveh, and he arose from his throne, and
    he laid his robe from him, and covered him with sackcloth, and sat in ashes.

    7 And he caused it to be proclaimed and published through Nineveh by the
    decree of the king and his nobles, saying, Let neither man nor beast, herd
    nor flock, taste any thing: let them not feed, nor drink water:

    8 But let man and beast be covered with sackcloth, and cry mightily unto
    God: yea, let them turn every one from his evil way, and from the violence
    that is in their hands.

    9 Who can tell if God will turn and repent, and turn away from his fierce
    anger, that we perish not?

    10 And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God
    repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them; and he
    did it not.

    Thank God it was a soft-top.
    Also, this is why hand operated window winders are better. With automatic
    ones, when your electrics short out, you’re stuck.
