Riverside County Sheriff’s Deputy Saves Man and Dog From Flooded Road

 

MENIFEEA Deputy from the Menifee Station rescued a man and his dog from rising water during the rainstorm on Friday. The vehicle, occupied by Glenn McCammon, 76, and ‘Problems’, his dog had stalled on Sun City Boulevard near Worcester Road. According to the news release, the passenger side of the vehicle began filling up with water.

McCammon had no choice but to exit the vehicle with his dog. Deputy Lewis responded to the scene and located the victim and his dog. Deputy Lewis swam into the water and helped McCammon and his dog to safety. No injuries were reported as a result of the incident.

The National Weather Service (NWS) reminds drivers to “Turn Around Don’t Drown” when streets are flooded. Drivers can not always accurately estimate the depth of the water until they are in it, only 6 inches of fast-moving flood water can knock an adult over. “It takes just 12 inches of rushing water to carry away a small car, while 2 feet of rushing water can carry away most vehicles,” NWS officials said.
