Woman and dog dramatically rescued from floodwaters

A dramatic video shows a woman and a dog being rescued after their car got swept up by floodwaters.

Three men in a small boat battled to pull the woman from the convertible that had been swallowed by the flooded river in Baton Rouge in Louisiana.

The woman could be heard yelling: "Oh my god, I'm drowning."

One of the rescuers, later identified as David Phung, then jumped into the water and pulled the woman from the car.

Several seconds later, Phung also emerges with a small dog in his arms.

Both the dog and the woman are said to be fine.
