A male driver is counting his lucky stars when he attempted to drive his SUV across the Little Sandy River in Elkview West Virginia on Friday evening. Fire Chief David Wagoner estimated that the time that the male driver was inside his auto after he called 911 to report that his SUV was going under. Pinch Volunteer Fire Department Lieutenant Corey Carr who also was involved in the rescue mission along with several firefighters companies was able to break the back glass window where the driver of the SUV was inside when the water was near the roof of the auto so he could grab the driver and get him to a rescue boat and to safety on solid ground where the driver would reunite with his relatives who were in the river bank. The firefighters who rescued the driver who was trapped inside his auto admitted that it was a close call in their job of rescuing the driver. There is a rule when dealing with high water. The rule is "When you see high ground, turn around." The SUV was stranded in the river. However the life of the human being is always top priority. .
