The footage, taken by US station WAFB, shows three men approaching a sinking convertible car in the Baton Rouge floods.

The men attempt to open the vehicle by ripping off the soft roof. Eventually one of the heroes jumps into the water and breaks a window before pulling out the distressed woman just in time.
