A woman is thanking her local fire department for saving her from a flooded street. The dramatic rescue was all caught on camera.

According to ABC News, an unidentified woman drove over a spillway on a flooded street in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Soon, flood water forced her SUV against a guardrail.

A dive team was quickly dispatched after the woman called 911 for help.

“My car is starting to fill up with water,” she said on a call with 911 dispatchers. “And there’s so much flooding. I don’t even know why I chose to do this. This is stupid. I didn’t think it was as bad as it is.”

Video shows a rescue crew take an inflatable raft to the SUV and pull the woman to safety.

“She is fine, a little shaken up, obviously. She was scared,” Battalion Chief Benny Fulkerson told KOCO. “Could’ve ended much differently if the guardrail broke.”

New OK reports parts of the city saw 2.6 inches of rain in just a few hours, which caused flooding in some areas.
