Impatient driver rescued after flood stalls van

Posted: Updated:
PEARL, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

While emergency responders were waiting for a boat to rescue an elderly woman trapped in her mobile home by fast rising floodwaters in Pearl, an impatient driver added to their workload. 

That's because a man driving a van didn't think the water looked that deep on Pearson Road, so he tried to drive through it.

Unfortunately for him, he was mistaken. The high water caused his van to stall.

Rescuers with the Pearl Fire Department and Cleary Volunteer Fire Department helped get both of them to safety.
