A state of emergency was declared on Saturday when torrential rainfall caused raging floodwaters throughout Elliot City, Maryland.

While Dave Dester and his wife were taking refuge in their Main Street shop and watching the fast moving currents sweeping cars down the road, they saw that one of them still contained a female driver.

Four nearby shop owners and pedestrians quickly formed a human chain to pull the woman from her vehicle, while Dave filmed the rescue.

Though the woman refused to climb completely out of the car for fear of being swept away, one of the men in the chain eventually scooped her into his arms and carried her to safety amidst encouraging cheers.
