A GOOD Samaritan saves a flood victim from drowning after dragging him from his sinking vehicle. Shot on October 4, the dramatic footage was captured by meteorologist Brett Adair, 29, who was covering the historic flooding which has engulfed South Carolina for Weather Nation TV. Taken in state capital Columbia, the video shows hero Joe Watts swimming out to the stranded vehicle and smashing in the driver's back window before hauling him to safety. The emergency services arrived soon after and rescued the pair from the back of the truck. Sunday was the wettest day in the history of the city according to the US National Weather Service with governor Nikki Haley describing the floods as a “1,000 year level of rain”.
