Ohio Sheriff's Deputy Rescues Woman From Flooded Vehicle—While They Have Unbelievable Conversation

2018-04-18 20:52
A sheriff’s deputy rescued a woman who was stuck in her vehicle on a flooded road in Chippewa Township, Ohio, on Monday, April 16. The Wayne County Sheriff’s Office released a video showing the deputy helping the woman to safety while the two carry a quirky conversation. The National Weather Service had issued a flood warning after several inches of rain fell in Northeast Ohio, including Wayne County, Patch reported. In the video, the deputy equips himself with life preservers and heads for the partially submerged vehicle. "Oh man, it's going to be cold," he's heard saying before traversing the water. The water on the road wasn’t deep, but it was deeper in ditches near the road, a police representative said. "I'm so sorry," the woman says when the deputy reaches the car. "You're ok. It happens," the deputy says. The deputy first tries to open the front door, but it's stuck. He then opens the rear door. The woman climbs over to the back seat, but when she's to step into the water, she come to a rather unexpected realization—the water might damage her footwear. "Oh my God, these are really nice shoes," she says. "Can I take my shoes of?" She does. The video then shows the deputy walking with the woman back to dry land. "Whoa! My feet are cold," the deputy says. "Mine too," the woman says. The two then continue a small talk while wading towards the police cruiser. Credit: Wayne County Sheriff's Office via Storyful
