Video: Teens rescued from flooded wash

Posted: Updated:
APACHE JUNCTION, Ariz. -

Rescue crews were very busy Sunday, pulling people out of flooded streets. Some were rescued on ladders from fire trucks. Some were able to walk out with some help. But in other situations, they were plucked out using helicopters and harnesses.

The people in one SUV needed to be rescued after they attempted to drive through this flooded wash in Apache Junction. The SUV was swept into those trees.

The two teens inside jumped out of the car and waited for help in those trees. Rescue crews dropped one harness down and pulled the first teen to safety, then it was time to help his friend.

SkyFox captured his rescue as well.

But this teen decided to whip out his cell phone camera and give us his perspective of the rescue, posting it on his Facebook page. Now it's on YouTube. Press play to see more.
