Houston reporter spots submerged semi, helps save driver

A local news reporter saved a truck driver from a grim fate, after his rig was swallowed by flood water in Houston, Texas on Sunday afternoon.

Local KHOU reporter Brandi Smith was reporting near Interstate 45, after Hurricane Harvey left much of Houston underwater, when she spotted the stranded truck driver on the flooded Hardy Toll Road.

After spotting the trapped driver, she noticed a Harris County Sheriff’s truck hauling a watercraft, and feverishly flagged down the officer. All of which took place live on air, and can be seen below.
