LAS VEGAS, Nev. (KSNV) – Monsoon season floods resulted in several close calls for motorists on southern Nevada roads Monday.

One rescue was caught on camera when a wall of water overtook an elderly couple trapped inside a Toyota Prius.

An airman stationed at nearby Creech Air Force Base saw the couple in trouble and leaped into action, pulling them to safety before nearly being swept away himself. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
