This is the dramatic moment a father and his two young children were rescued from their overturned truck as rapidly rising floodwaters surrounded the vehicle.

Phillip Ocheltree, 25, of Wills Point, Texas, was driving home with his two kids in the backseat after tornadoes ripped through the state on Saturday, when he says his truck ‘hydroplaned off the highway.’

The vehicle flipped, trapping Ocheltree and his infant son Marshal, and little girl Addyson, aka Addy, inside, as rising flood water surrounded the car making it impossible to open the doors.

Thankfully, passersby spotted the upturned truck near Myrtle Spring and rushed to the family’s aid.
