Police officers in Pascagoula, Mississippi, rescued two women who became stranded in a car surrounded by floodwater from Tropical Depression Ida, footage posted on August 31 shows.
Police said Officer Collier came to the pair’s aid when he spotted that they were trapped by the water, before pulling them to safety with the assistance of Sergeant Murphy.
Ida brought dangerous storm surges and widespread flooding to the US after it made landfall on August 29, while powerful winds caused damage and power cuts. At least six deaths have been attributed to the storm.
