HIGHLAND, Calif. (KABC) --Two dramatic swift-water rescues were captured on video in San Bernardino County on Sunday after a winter storm resulted in severe flooding.
In the Cajon Pass, the driver of a pickup truck unsuccessfully tried to cross Swarthout Canyon Road after heavy rain transformed it into a raging river.
When the motorist became stranded amid the flowing water, a search-and-rescue team used a raft to pull him to safety.
Another pickup -- occupied by a toddler, a young boy and two adults -- got stuck on a washed-out road in Murrieta.
Firefighters responded to Monroe Street at the 15 Freeway, where at least one of them swam out to the vehicle while attached to a safety line. The driver and passengers were helped out of the truck and pulled to higher ground.
No injuries were reported in either incident.
