Excavator Rescues Dump Truck Drivers

According to the YouTube description of the video below these two dump truck drivers became trapped by floodwaters while driving along a mountain road. As the video begins, both drivers are stranded in their trucks as the high waters threaten to wash them away.

Thankfully, a nearby excavator operator jumps into action, braving the torrent of water and rescuing both men. It wasn’t an easy task for the operator either. At a few moments during the rescue, you can see the excavator slip a bit with the flow of the water before the operator is able to either crawl or claw through the surge of water.
