A video posted on Facebook by Councilman Greg Brockhouse, a city official of Texas in US, shows the moment how rescuers are finally able to rescue a man stuck on top of his SUV due to floods. The raging flood water into the city of San Antonio, Texas trapped the man on top of the SUV.

In the video, it is clearly visible that the man in pink shirt and shorts, black bag, is on the top of the SUV waiting for the rescuers to save him.

The whole situation which was reported by the local media, revealed that the man had been stuck on top of his vehicle for 45 min. It was also reported that the two previous attempts were failed by the firefighters in this rescue mission. According to the rescuers, the man was on his way to work, when he was driving through foot-high water on a low-lying road.

As the firefighters were able to connect the ladder nearby to the man, immediately, the life jacket was handed to the man and he was finally able to climb the ladder safely.
