Woman rescued through car window during Arizona flash flood

A woman in Arizona trapped when raging floodwaters suddenly enveloped her car was saved in a daring rescue outside Phoenix, video shows.

Sue Teders was driving on a dry gravel road with no rain nearby when a wall of water suddenly appeared, causing her to get stuck, Fox Weather reported. The state has been hit with a barrage of monsoons and flash flooding since Thursday, according to AZ Central.

Two police officers, one detention officer and a firefighter pulled Teders through the back seat window of her mostly-submerged car as a river of floodwater rushes around them, according to body cam footage of the incident in Apache Junction.
