Heavy rains are occurring now in California and in the South.
Let's review the #1 thing everyone should remember when they see water across the road: Turn Around, Don't Drown .
Story chaser and friend Chris Novy almost became a statistic on May 31, 2013.
This very brief video shows how quickly things can go from safe to near-fatal. Chris says had his car not buckled and the window broken he never would have been able to get out. I'll let him pick it up in his own words.
Chris also posted this photo on Facebook.
I also want to make a point that Chris is too polite to make. The police car was useless. Here is a screen capture. I didn't even see the police car the first time I viewed the video.
Thanks, Chris, for making this available. I hope it saves lives and prevents needless property loss.
