The crew dropped everything, grabbed a rope and ran to get the man out of his truck.

"It's too unsafe out there", he said.

"Lord have mercy, this is too much of a time for you to be interviewed right now", Griffin said.

A soaked Sumrall later joined the reporter on screen to thank them.

'How are you doing? You're alive, sir. You're alive. Sumrall was then content to depart for nearby motel accommodations that have been providing his shelter from the storm, while Griffin continued to express his on disbelief on camera. "There was no time to call 911. Please, stay indoors. You just got to survive this storm for the next hour or so". He was floating down this ravine. After the playback of the clip, Griffin said Jerry caught a ride back to his hotel from another passerby and would later call the police about his truck. He explained he was from Winnie, Texas, which he said was getting hit pretty hard by the rains.

Another helped save a family from rushing flood waters and a fast-thinking Houston TV crew saved a drowning trucker's life. "This is why it's so unsafe right now to be out".
