Must See: Dramatic Video of Good Samaritans in Texas Saving Two Babies from Drowning in Overturned SUV

In what will no doubt be the best story of the day, a group of Good Samaritans in Texas were recorded heroically saving two beautiful children from drowning after the vehicle the kids were in flipped into a drainage ditch during a storm.

The story unfolded on Saturday as a series of powerful storms ripped through Texas bringing torrential rain, high winds, and monster tornadoes rolling through the state. That was when a father and his two small children found themselves in the fight of their lives near Myrtle Springs, Texas. The SUV they were in hydroplaned on the slick roadway and the father lost control of the vehicle which soon tumbled and flipped into a drainage ditch running alongside the road. Others nearby noticed and rushed to help as the water raging through the ditch began to rise.

More than half a dozen Good Samaritans risked life and limb to save the father and his trapped children in the terrifying situation.

One passerby filmed the entire event and you can feel the palpable sense of dread, terror, and heartache as the gathered crowd fights to save the two little lives.

But even as the situation grew more perilous for the rescuers they continued to battle…

“Update on addy bug, she is stable and doing much better. Still under sedation but pulling the breathing tube in the morning to see if she can do it on her own.’

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
