10-4-15 Columbia, SC Gills Creek Water Rescue
A vehicle drives around the barricade at I-77 and Bluff Road and drives into Gills Creek that is over the roadway. The record flood for Gills was 9.1 feet...which was smashed by the flood on Sunday. The river gauge hit 17.1 feet before breaking and being carried down stream. This video features the truck floating down stream....a good samaritan swimming out to the vehicle and knocking the window out to get him out of the cab....and the ensuing swift water rescue team that moves in to rescue the two that are in the bed of the white pickup truck.
