These police officers put their lives in grave danger to rescue a family trapped in floodwaters, working together to form a human chain to reach their car.
Dramatic video released Tuesday shows the officers, who did not hesitate to jump into dangerous water in the middle of a tropical storm. You can see lightning flashing in the sky as water rages all around them. The family of four found themselves suddenly trapped in rising water, and made a desperate call to 911.
The video was caught on the bodycam of the Conroe police officers in the chain. One of the cops went under to get to the car as Tropical Storm Imelda struck the town of Conroe. When she came up, her flashlight illuminated the path for a little boy and little girl being passed to safety.
