LATTA, S.C. - They were in the right place at the right time.
Reporter Chris Jose and photojournalist Brandon Bryant with Atlanta's WSB-TV, which is owned by Cox Media Group, have been in South Carolina covering what is now tropical depression Florence. The two are making their way to Fayetteville, North Carolina, to cover the flooding and damage left by the storm there.
They were driving up Interstate 95 when they found the roadway flooded over around Latta, South Carolina.
Jose said they decided to take some of the back country roads to get around the flooding when they ran across a woman who was stuck inside her car, with floodwater rapidly rising up around it.
The two said the woman was yelling, "Help me! Help me!” The area was under a tornado warning, adding to the already dangerous situation.
