Video: Floods sweep cars away

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.
