A group of good samaritans on Friday pulled a woman from her car which was being swept away by flash floods in Bangalore, India.

A group of onlookers noticed the car, which was stranded, on a flooded road on the outskirts of the city.

The strong currents were pulling the car towards a huge storm drain.

In a video from the spot, the onlookers can be heard wondering if there was anyone inside.

One of them notices that there is indeed a woman inside and raises the alarm.

The group is initially reluctant to step into water as the current is too strong and the drain too close.

But one of them plunges in prompting several others to follow.

They approach the car, open the door, and come back with a woman - terrified but lucky to be saved in the nick of time.

Bangalore, like many parts of India, has been receiving record rain this year.

The city was lashed by heavy downpour on October 13 evening, which flooded the roads.
