Firefighters rescue woman trapped inside car in fast-moving high water

SAN ANTONIO — It was a scary situation for a woman stuck in quick moving, high water on the northeast side of town late Tuesday.

Police were called out to I-35 at Salado Creek Greenway around 9:45 p.m. for a high water rescue.

While they were helping the man, a young woman came and told police that her friend was in a flooded out vehicle in fast moving water. This second incident was directly across from the location of the initial stalled out vehicle, on I-35 South, so crews quickly redirected their attention to help her.

SAFD walked to the victim trapped in fast moving currents, secured her to them, then escorted her to safety.

No injuries were reported in this incident, and no citations were issued.

But officials have a reminder for everyone. If you see high water, turn around… don’t drown.
