Rescuers Shake Their Heads as Pickup Drives into Floodwater in England

Members of a rescue crew in Hereford, England, were seen shaking their heads and gesticulating when a motorist drove their pickup truck into several feet of floodwater on February 17 as Storm Dennis affected the region.

The Hereford Times reported that several roads remained closed in the area on February 21.

Over 200 flood warnings or alerts were in place across the UK on February 21. The Met Office said they had several yellow weather warnings that were expected to remain in place until February 22.

Journalist Christine Megson, who shot this footage, later posted a follow-up video to Twitter showing the motorist driving out of the floodwater with the caption, “Just so you all know the happy ending.” Credit: Meganewswest via Storyful
