A Dallas woman said she’s OK “by the grace of God” after her car was swept into floodwaters and a quick-thinking TV reporter came to her rescue.

Fox Weather journalist Robert Ray was reporting on the Texas flood Monday morning when local woman Stephanie Carroll’s vehicle ended up partially submerged in deadly flash flood waters.
As Carroll’s car started to float off the ground, she began to worry.
“I’m OK. I’m OK by the grace of God,” Carroll told Fox Weather after her rescue. “I thought I was dying. I thought I was going to die.”
She added, “I thought I was going to drown.”
Ray initially tried to push her vehicle to a safe place, but when he realized that wasn’t possible, he quickly pulled her through one of her car windows and carried her to safety.
“I’ve never been in a situation like this,” Ray said afterward.

Ray spoke with Carroll on camera just minutes after the incident, and she appeared visibly relieved.
Dallas is just one storm-plagued city making headlines this week, with the city and surrounding areas getting “a summer’s worth of rain in a day,” according to CNN.
The record-breaking rain — at least 15 inches on Monday alone — left at least one person dead. The body of a 60-year-old woman was reportedly discovered in her car after floodwaters receded.
Pray for her friends, loved ones, and those dealing with the cleanup and assessing damage after the historic rainfall.
