Shortly before 6:45 PM Station 49 was dispatched for a water rescue on River Road (RT. 23). Marine 49 arrived to a vehicle in flood waters. Rescuers entered the water to find one victim who was assisted out of the vehicle and brought to safety. This is a reminder that if you see flood waters to #TurnAroundDontDrown. With storms like the ones that have occurred in the past 2 days, it is imperative to keep this in mind.
