Special correspondent in Dallas for the Fox Weather channel, Robert Ray’s mission was to cover the bad weather and the evolution of the floods in the Texas city.
This Monday, August 22, as he was preparing to go live on television for his weather report, this American journalist has swapped his microphone for a hero’s cape.
Indeed, a few minutes before his speech in duplex, the journalist witnessed an impressive scene. And for good reason, a car drowned in a pool of water formed by severe weather.
Neither one nor two the meteorologist jumped into the water to rescue the driver of the car, who was stuck in the passenger compartment. A very courageous act and above all captured by the cameras of the channel. The rescue has also been massively relayed on social networks with more than 50,000 views at the time of writing these lines.

When questioned after being rescued, the driver explained that she had not paid attention to the water level on the roadway. “I take this path every day to pick up my daughter. I thought I was going to die, that I was going to drown”.
Luckily for her, the journalist showed excellent reflexes by helping her out through the window and bringing her back to dryness. Good on the other hand, as far as the car is concerned, we must say goodbye to it.
