NORTHWOOD, Iowa (AP) — Emergency response crews are being credited for rescuing a girl and two women from an SUV in northern Iowa that was submerged in rushing floodwater.
Crews pulled them out of the vehicle Wednesday night near Northwood, just south of the Minnesota border.
Lt. Daniel Schaffer with the Iowa State Patrol says heavy rain caused the SUV to go off the road and into a flooded ditch.
KTTC-TV reports (http://bit.ly/175p13e ) crews rescued the girl from the front passenger window. Video footage shows the girl crying as a rescue crew member holds her above water and brings her to higher ground.
First responders examined the girl and women on scene. Additional information about their identities and whether they were taken to a hospital was not available.
